PINK ladies and T-Birds turned up in force for a free outdoor screening of the 1970s classic musical Grease in Kidderminster.
More than 2,500 people had a blast at the event held in Brinton Park on Saturday.
Wyre Forest District Council organised the event which included a quiz, a fancy dress competition and performances by singers Chris Green and Grace Winnitt.
Before the film started at 8pm, there was a surprise flash mob performance from Splinters Dance Studio who were hidden in the crowd before bursting into dance.
The three winners of the Grease fancy dress competition were nine-year-old Elle Mae Biggs, of Stourport, dressed as Sandy and Ian Valentine and Karen Pawley of Kidderminster dressed as Kenickie and Frenchie who each won a box of chocolates.
The winner of the Grease themed quiz was Sarah Keen of Kidderminster who won a family ticket for the Severn Valley Railway. Sarah Richards of Kidderminster won a months membership at DC Leisure centres for her impressive dance moves.
The council hopes to put on a similar event next year.
Councillor Ian Hardiman, cabinet member for community well-being said: “What a fantastic evening of entertainment we had. The event was a huge success attracting more than 2,500 people.
“It brought together the whole community. Brinton Park was buzzing and it’s the talk of the town on social networks locally. We’re hoping to put on a similar event next year after the great feedback.
“It was a great way to bring to an end a very successful summer of events organised by Wyre Forest District Council.”
