Join us on the Festival Lawn for an evening of fun as we showcase short films for family enjoyment. Guests are invited to bring their own lawn chairs, blankets, and snacks. Jade Stone Café will also be open from 7 to 9 pm and offer a light menu of cookies, bar desserts, sodas, iced tea, and sparkling beverages. In case of inclement weather, the films will be screened indoors in the Edward Rudge Allen III Education Center.
