Holidaymakers are enjoying an extra long 5 day weekend this weekend as Anzac Day joins up with Easter. Locals and tourists are flocking to Glenelg to take advantage of the wonderful weather and festivities. There's plenty to see and do, and of course the shops are open! Harbour Town has organised a range of holiday activities for the kids including performances, face painting and more.
Yesterday saw Glenelg hosting a one day round robin Beach Rugby tournament down on the sand. The event was open to anyone who wanted to join in. The Salvation Army performed in Moseley Square at lunch time as people dined at Glenelg's many cafe's.
Tomorrow will be an early start for some as Glenelg holds the ANZAC Day Dawn service at Lights Landing, Holdfast Shores Glenelg. The official parade for all veterans and ex-service personnel commences at 5:45am from Moseley Square (Colley Terrace end) and proceeds along Colley Terrace to Lights Landing Memorial. The ceremony will take place at 6:00am to 6:45am with a breakfast being served by the Salvation Army, after the ceremony at Wigley Reserve.
On Monday horse racing fans will be able to join in the fun of the Oakbank Easter Racing Carnival. If you're not planning to head to Oakbank you can still enjoy the festivities and watch it on the big screen at the Allan Scott Park Morphetville Racecourse.
