Parks, School District Partner to “Stomp Out Bullying” – Special Movies in the Park Event Planned Friday

This event has been postponed due to unhealthy air quality.

Bullies beware, a special-themed event planned to coincide with a FREE motion picture screening of the film “Wonder” is set for Friday evening, August 10th, 2018, in Madera.


The event, which will take place at Lion’s Town & Country Park, will feature special guest speakers, games, prizes, and a free raffle (grade school–college students only) for what the Parks Department teases as an “Apple-MAZING” gift – a computer generously donated by the United Way of Fresno & Madera Counties. Based on the New York Times bestseller, WONDER tells the incredibly inspiring and heartwarming story of August Pullman, a boy with facial differences who enters fifth grade, attending a mainstream elementary school for the first time.
