Village fun not done yet

20 Aug

The start of school is just around the corner and summer of 2018 is winding down, but the Village of Webster isn’t ready to stop dishing out the fun quite yet.

bfgThis Tuesday, August 21, the village will host its last Tuesday Movie Night of the season, featuring Disney’s Big Friendly Giant.

This is a kid-friendly favorite. An orphan girl befriends a benevolent giant who takes her to Giant Country, where they attempt to stop the man-eating giants from invading the human world.

The movie begins at dusk at the village’s Gazebo Park on North Ave. Approximate starting time and weather updates will be posted on the Village’s Facebook page. Bring your chairs and blankets, and refreshments if you like, but free popcorn will be provided by Hegedorn’s.

There’s also one more Village Band concert coming up this week, on Thursday August 23.

If you haven’t experienced a performance by the Village Band yet, this is your last chance this summer to enjoy this under-appreciated village treasure. Concerts begin at 7 p.m. at the band shell on Phillips Road (near Ridge). Bring a lawn chair or blanket and relax!

In case of inclement weather, the concerts are held at Cherry Ridge Senior Center, across from Webster Schroeder High School on Ridge Road.

That’s it for August, but put these upcoming events on your calendar right now:

  • The village’s second Beer Walk will be held on Saturday, September 15, 2018. Likebeer mug at the Wine Walks, this is a great chance to visit local restaurants and merchants and sample some beer and spirits.

   Stay tuned for a list of the “brew stops” and more details.

  • If all of the retailers are already putting out Halloween decorations and candy corn, we can start talking about Halloween in the Village and Trick or Treat Trail. This is one of my favorite village events of the entire year.

Although details about this year’s Trick or Treat Trail have not yet been posted to the BID website, I would lay odds it will be held on October 27, the Saturday before Halloween. There’s always a costume contest, lots of treats for the kids at local merchants, wagon rides and open houses at the fire department and museum.

Check the BID website regularly for details.
