It was a fun-filled weekend in Whitby! We’re excited to have hosted our first big event of the summer at Dockside in Whitby, Whitby’s new lakefront destination. Dockside is our event space in Whitby Harbour, on the shores of Lake Ontario. We’ve been a proud sponsor of an incredible series of community events at Dockside since early 2017, and the fun just keeps coming!
This past Saturday, we hosted Dockside Cinema, and it was a great success! This free event welcomed families from Whitby and across the Durham Region to an evening of fun in celebration of the season and the spirit of community. The superhero themed event featured all kinds of fun for the whole family, including face painting, superhero arts and crafts, inflatables/bouncy castles, games, superhero training with Wonder Woman, Batman and Captain America, food trucks, gourmet popsicles, local craft beer, delicious cocktails, giveaways and more. The day ended with a large screen movie viewing on the lakeshore at dusk of the popular new superhero blockbuster Captain Marvel and free popcorn for all. Hundreds of people came out to enjoy the day, congregate with friends and family, and enjoy a movie on the waterfront.
