A record-breaking 3,000 people followed the Yellow Brick Road to the Center last night for the screening of The Wizard of Oz which kicked off this summer's free Movie Mondays series on the community plaza. The evening started with a fun themed costume contest. Guests were invited to dress as their favorite character from the film for a chance to win prizes such as tickets to the Orange County Fair and goodies from Broadway shows scheduled to appear at the Center. Chosen by audience applause, the winner for best costume was Scarecrow Chase Castillo from Orange (pictured below with his sister Chanelle; pictured above: Kailyn, Olivia and Jackie Cortez from Placentia). Movie Mondays continues next week with Some Like it Hot on July 19 with a movie trivia contest.
