The Summer Street Fair featuring the 17th Annual Arts Walk will be held Saturday, July 18 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on historic Front Street in Port Jervis. Local artists and businesses will show and sell their arts, crafts, products or services. (Rain date July 19)
As a special attraction, Bon Secours Community Hospital is sponsoring the cost of a free movie, “Frozen,” a spectacular Walt Disney animated production and winner of two Academy Awards, for the entire family to enjoy with their friends and family.
“Arts Walk is one of the most inspiring and wonderful events showcasing talented artists and musicians in our area,” said Tri-State Chamber Executive Director Charlene Trotter. “Artists touch the heart and the sponsorship of this film speaks to the heart of Bon Secours Community Hospital, which is bringing us together at this event.”
The film will be shown at 9:00 p.m. that Saturday night on a professional 42-foot wide screen. Front Street will be blocked off to traffic and moviegoers are asked to bring their own lawn chairs, blankets or whatever to relax and enjoy an old fashion drive-in style event. Chamber Ambassador and movie theater entrepreneur Nelson Page is coordinating the screen production.
“At Bon Secours Community Hospital,” said Bon Secours Community Hospital Community Liaison Mary Decker, “we know that good health encompasses more than freedom from illness. Good Health includes body, mind and spirit and time for leisure and family activities. That is why it is our pleasure to offer our community an opportunity to enjoy a movie in the street of downtown Port Jervis for all to enjoy at no cost. Laughter and leisure are good for everyone, so I hope that people from all over the Tri-State Community come to enjoy this special event.”
