What’s coming up:

Australia’s National Day of Thanks

Date: May 27, 2017

The National Day of Thanks is back on Saturday 27th May! It’s a day for Australians to pause and thank God and each other for the blessings we all enjoy.

Australia’s National Day of Thanks is a unique opportunity for Australians  to celebrate and give thanks for our God given heritage as a nation, and to demonstrate the values of honour, respect, thankfulness and gratitude towards our fellow man.

It is a day for Australians to pause as a nation and say thank you to God and to each other for those many things we often take for granted, those things that really make our lives worth living.

Let us use this National Day each year to be a blessing to those who have been a blessing to us.

Hobart Showground’s Cracker Night

Date: May 27, 2017

All is now in readiness for the Hobart Showground’s second cracker night this Saturday, May 27.

Some 3,000 people turned up for Cracker Night last year when the Showground first hosted it.

The  event lets children enjoy an old tradition in a controlled and safe environment.

Cracker Night first occurred on Empire Day to mark Queen Victoria’s birthday. Most older Australians will remember cracker night with fondness, but in recent years, safety considerations have seen the demise of many cracker night festivities.

This Saturday the Showground event has grown into a mini carnival. Weather permitting, the event will consist of a fireworks display with youngsters in mind, a bonfire, carnival rides, Zorb ball fun, a Make Believe farm show, jumping castle, live music and other entertainment. Food and beverages will be available at the Showground.

The entry fee is $10 per person but children 12 and under get free entry. Gates will be open at 5.00pm and there is plenty of onsite parking.
