Lots of laughs at Saturday Cereal Cinema - 510 Families

Lots of laughs at Saturday Cereal Cinema

On Saturday December 10, 2016, Close5 hosted another fun {510} Families party for our readers and friends. This time we hid from a rainy morning in the eclectic New Parkway for Cereal Cinema.

Our guests at the New Parkway’s Saturday Cereal Cinema found a cozy spot to spend the morning together. We watched vintage cartoons as diverse as the Fraggles and Animaniacs for 90 minutes while enjoying the never-ending cereal bar.

I visited the cereal bar a few times to scope it out before making my choices. I was pleasantly surprised at the range of the offerings from healthy-looking granola to chocolate strawberry surprise puffs.
