The third annual Moonlight Picnic fundraiser for the Niagara Pumphouse Arts Centre sold out early again this year as more than 400 people attended the popular event held last Friday at the Pumphouse.

 Lise Andreana, chair of the Pumphouse board of directors and co-ordinator of the event, said the night is so popular because it is unique – people bring their own food to tables outside the arts centre for the picnic.

She added that the evening really appeals to locals because it’s like an old-fashioned gathering of friends and neighbours. “Our board members and many volunteers worked hard to put it all together,” she said.

Niagara-on-the-Lake  band Back in the Daze brought the picnickers to their feet dancing to the Eagles, Bruce Springsteen, the Beatles and other hits from the ‘60s and ‘70s.
