The Suffolk Holiday Parade scheduled for Saturday, December 9, 2017, has been cancelled out of an abundance of caution for the safety and welfare of participants and guests due to projected continuing inclement weather through Saturday evening. The parade was scheduled to step-off at 7:00 p.m. There is no rain date for the event.
There is still plenty of indoor seasonal fun for citizens to enjoy on Saturday, as the Suffolk Division of Tourism and Suffolk Center for Cultural Arts will present the delightful animated film, Disney’s Moana, at the Suffolk Center for Cultural Arts at 2 p.m. This epic adventure film is based on stories from Polynesian mythology and features breathtaking animation. Movie fans will get a special treat after the film, as Moana will be stopping by for photos with film attendees. Admission is free and open to the public; however, a donation of canned food or non-perishable food item is encouraged. For more information, please contact the Suffolk Center for Cultural Arts box office at 757.923.2900.
Moana Waialiki, an adventurous teenager in Ancient Polynesia, is a sea voyaging enthusiast and the only daughter of a chief in a long line of navigators. When her island's fishermen can't catch any fish and the crops fail, she learns that the Demigod Maui caused the blight by stealing the heart of the goddess, Te Fiti. The only way to heal the island is to persuade Maui to return Te Fiti's heart. Together, Moana and Maui set sail on an epic journey across the Pacific, encountering enormous monsters and impossible odds. Along the way, Moana fulfills the ancient quest of her ancestors and discovers the one thing she always sought: her own identity.
