8 Flags Playscapes is hosting a movie for the 2013 Amelia Island Film Festival.
The movie High Ground will be shown. This is a documentary that follows a team of veterans returning from combat in Afghanistan and Iraq as they set out to climb a towering Himalayan peak to overcome challenges and heal the mental and emotional ravages of war.
Please join us for this spectacular presentation on Saturday, March 23 at 5:00 PM at the Peck Center.
This event is free to all supporters of 8 Flags Playscapes and Pirate Playground.
