Two Bradford children happily rode away from the Main Street Movie House Saturday on their brand new bicycles, courtesy of the 2018 Kiwanis Family Film Festival.

The festival, held in cooperation with the Blaisdell Foundation and the Main Street Movie House, featured free Saturday morning animated film matinees for young children and their families. The festival took place over four Saturday mornings in late January and early February.

Books for young children were provided at several of the sessions and Lacey Love, executive director of the Bradford Public Library was on hand to offer library card applications and information on other children’s programs at the library.

Through the generosity of the Blaisdell Foundation, the Kiwanis Club was able to raffle off two Trek bicycles purchased from Just Riding Along bicycle shop in Bradford, locally owned by Pete Dzirkalis.

The drawing was held on Saturday at the conclusion of “Mr. Peabody and Sherman.” The boy’s bicycle was awarded to 4-year old Caleb Weart, while the girl’s bicycle was awarded to 8-year old Cheyenne Bourque/Ives after the raffle drawings.  

Members of the Bradford Area High School Key Club and Fretz Middle School Kiwanis Builder’s Club assisted at the matinees.
