There will be a variety of local market and food stalls, or pack a picnic basket to enjoy with friends and family. For the music lover, live music will be playing all afternoon and Welders Dog will be there to entertain with some backyard cricket and a few other games, before fireworks finish off the day at 8.30pm.

Australia Day Ambassadors, Samantha Hollier-James and Geoff Coombes, will be in attendance.
