Clean, Green & Safe Neighbourhoods

EnhancePG is a volunteer group of citizens committed to strengthening the social, cultural and natural structure of Prince George through partnerships (private, public and corporate) in projects and education.

     Outdoor Movie in Fort George Park

    Over 2500 people (mostly families) enjoyed a night under the stars watching Madagascar 3.  Fresh Air Films brought in a 3 story screen and sound system.  Thousands of people gathered in Fort George Park with lawn chairs and sleeping bags in tow.  Thanks to Fortis BC and Investors Group for supporting this film.  EnhancePG provided a concession with proceeds going to two non-profit organizations.  Great time had by all!
