poster for gabriola Roots premiere

A warm summer night, relaxing in a lawn chair, fresh popcorn in hand, surrounded by a posse of quirky scarecrows, ready to watch a good movie on an outdoor screen…

You can have all this on Friday, September 4, at 6:30 p.m. on the Gabriola Museum grounds. It’s the premiere of a new and expanded version of the film GABRIOLA ROOTS: THE LAND PROVIDES. Pre-show entertainment includes a lively auction of scarecrows created by Island businesses and individuals.
