I was so lucky to attend the advance screening of the Incredibles 2 last night in 3D. I was so excited to see this movie… and it did not disappoint!!!  We have been waiting a long time for this super hero family to return to the big screen. Disney Pixar- did such an amazing job.

This film surrounds Elastigirl and her career as superhero. As a working mom and entrepreneur, I could relate to so much of this film. The MomGuilt is Real! Her need to succeed in the work place for her family is something any mom or dad can relate to. We laughed and laughed throughout this whole movie. I think Jack Jack steals the show…. he is our fave. It picks up right where the last one left off.  So many great things to walk away from this movie. The need for family and working as a team. Everyone has a place and working together will always prevail.

Grab the family and head out this weekend to see this amazing movie by #Disney #Pixar. A Family Favourite!! <3

It comes to theatres Friday June 15th! I almost want to go see it again… and again… and again….  🙂

Check out the full trailer here. You don’t want to miss out on this great family Classic!

Keep a lookout for our float. We are float #13. We have some treats for the kids that we will be handing out. So be on the lookout as there will be a special promo on each bag. An upwards of 25,000 people attend this yearly parade.  This year’s Grand marshal is CJAD’s Andrew Carter.

The Parade starts at 1pm all along Main Road. See the map below for the full outline of the parade route.

There will be tons of detours all around hudson in preparation for the parade. Here is a detailed map of the area and which streets will be blocked off. We hope to see you there decked out in your green attire in celebration of St. Patrick’s day. Arrive early to get the perfect spot.
