Weekends in Connecticut!

Weekends in Connecticut! An inspiring new movie based on a horse, Dream Horse, is our pick of the weekend! CT Farmers Markets are up and running! Great kids events to learn about gardening, fundraisers and lots of animals to pet this weekend in CT!

This weekend’s movie pick is an inspiring true story! Dream Horse! About a horse named, Dream Alliance, an unlikely race horse bred by small town Welsh bartender, Jan Vokes (Played by Academy Award® nominee Toni Collette). With very little money and no experience, Jan convinces her neighbors to chip in their meager earnings to help raise Dream in the hopes he can compete with the racing elites. The group’s investment pays off as Dream rises through the ranks with grit and determination and goes on to race in the Welsh Grand National showing the heart of a true champion….take a look!

AND I did tell you a couple of weeks ago to get your tickets in advance to see Bon Jovi on the big screen! It premieres tomorrow at the Southington Drive in and it is SOLD OUT!!! Rock & Roll Hall of Fame band Bon Jovi hits big screens worldwide with an exclusive brand-new, full concert length show. The never-before-seen concert is being recorded live in New Jersey and will be broadcast into cinemas around the world. It will be available on demand and streaming services eventually!
