Divas Outdoors presents Singin' In the Rain

Let Gene Kelly and Debbie Reynolds sweep you off your feet in the glorious Singin' in the Rain, while you sip beer, wine, or champagne from Hillwood's café.

Come early and set out your elaborate picnic spread.

Pour your energy into planning your fabulous props and costumes, knowing that we'll pour the drinks when you arrive!  Choose a special champagne cocktail, beer, wine, or champagne to go with your feast, or pick up a sandwich from Hillwood's Café!

Our judges love connections to the film, costumes, and props, including table cloths, flameless candelabras, serving dishes, baskets, centerpieces, and classic movie snacks.

Winners will receive an annual membership to Hillwood, bragging rights, and the envy and admiration of your fellow film-goers.
