Port Coquitlam: Summer in the City Festival – Week 5

Bring your family and friends for fun summer experiences each week at the Farmers Market, Village Vibe Performing Arts Series, Music in the Square, and Cinema Under the Stars—all free events taking place at Leigh Square and local parks! Here are the events for the fifth week of Summer in the City.

FARMER’S MARKET: Blueberry Pancakes – Thursday, August 3 from 3-7pm at Leigh Square

Cinema Under the Stars at GATES PARK, Moana – Friday, August 4 at 8:45pm
This week’s feature is Moana. On a mystic island off Oceania in the South Pacific, young princess Moana Waialiki is the feisty teenage daughter of the chief of her tribe, and the only daughter in a long line of navigators. When her family needs her help, she sails off across the open Pacific ocean on an epic adventure to save her people. Joined by the energetic, less-than-humble, once-powerful demigod Maui, Moana is determined to prove herself a master way finder and to fulfill her ancestors’ unfinished quest. Along the way, she discovers her own identity on the mission, which also pits her against impossible odds and enormous monsters. This evening of Cinema Under the Stars is sponsored in part by G&F Financial Group.

Village Vibe — Saturday, August 5 from 2 to 4pm at Leigh Square
