ORANGE City Council's Youth Week celebrations will conclude on Thursday with a movie under the the night sky.
The past week has seen a series of events and activities across the city organised by its younger demographic, including a commando course at Integra Health and Fitness Club and an urban circus conducted by 360 Allstars at Orange Civic Theatre.
The festivities will wrap up with a free open-air viewing of family-friendly 'Smallfoot' at Northcourt, on the corner of March and Peisley streets on Thursday.
People are invited to get there by 5.30pm, with the film to start soon after.

The calendar of events was planned and coordinated by the council's Youth Action Council with support from a range of Orange service providers.
Council's Services Policy Committee chairperson Stephen Nugent said being part of the YAC presented young people with an "opportunity ... to show leadership, organise events and express their views and ideas".
"Anyone aged between 12 and 25 is welcome to join council's YAC. It's a great opportunity to learn skills you'll need throughout your life, make friends and become a leader in your community," Cr Nugent said.
Mayor Reg Kidd paid tribute to the efforts of the YAC.
"Youth Week is a collaboration from a range of young people, from different backgrounds, getting together to give the city's youth a boost," Cr Kidd said.
"Our Youth Action Council is a talented bunch of young people who are working hard at making Orange the best place to grow up."
