August 25: Beauty and the Beast (2017) at Rum Village

A young woman whose father has been imprisoned by a beast offers herself in his place, unaware that her captor is actually a prince.

Prepare for an enchanted evening of movie themed art, games, food and drinks! Meet some of your favorite characters from the movie, enjoy a performance put on by the South Bend Civic Theatre, and find your next favorite book at Words Worth, the Bookmobile. Come dressed as your favorite Beauty and the Beast character to be a part of a costume contest, held for both children and adults. Enjoy games like book bowling and "Guess your Character", as well as free face painting and other fun yard games. 

In addition to the fun and games, adults 21+ can enjoy a beer garden by Bare Hands Brewery. Food will be available for purchase from The Waffle Wagon, The Pizza Dude, Martin's Side Street Deli, Kona Ice, and Aunt Suzy's Treats.
