Wax on, wax off. 

The Karate Kid kick-started Bendigo’s cinema pop-up series this evening, as part of Summer in the Parks. 

Rosalind Park will be home to a giant screen until Sunday, when the series ends with Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy.

Toy Story screens on Thursday night, while Daniel Craig’s first James Bond film, Casino Royale, screens on Friday. Step Brothers screens on Saturday night. 

General admission is free to those who book online

Families made the most of the beautiful weather on Wednesday night, turning out early to enjoy the evening.

Marlene Quay and her granddaughter Justice-Rose Kennedy-Quay allowed for ample time to enjoy a picnic dinner. 

Meanwhile, children tried their hands at giant Jenga and took turns behind the driver’s wheel of a little red fire engine.

People were making the most of the city’s recreation areas throughout the day, as the temperature rose to almost 30 degrees.
