Boo Bash 2020 is going to look a little different but a lot amazing this year… as a DRIVE-IN MOVIE SPECTACULAR. All Riverside School students K through 5 are invited to join us to kick off their Halloween celebrations. This socially distanced event will bring our community together and ensure our kids have a fun and memorable Halloween 2020.


Due to the high chances of rain tonight that would impact the production equipment, the drive-in movie is again rescheduled to Friday, November 6th at 6 pm, doors open at 5 pm.   If you wish to refund your ticket please email Kelly Vives or Brielle DiCarlo by Tuesday at 5 pm.


If you are unable to attend but wish to donate your ticket payment to the PTA, please let us know and we very much appreciate that! As previously noted, the ticket cost covers the cost of the event. We are truly sorry for this frustrating inconvenience and hope your family can still enjoy the movie with us next weekend.  


The show must go on!

Venue: Hyatt Regency Old Greenwich, 1800 East Putnam Avenue, Old Greenwich CT 06870
