Race Day fun follows solemnity
COMMEMORATE those fallen and celebrate local racing with The Townsville Turf Club’s Remembrance Day at the Races.
The turf club will hold a fun family day tomorrow with a Remembrance Day ceremony at 10.50am, a kids’ superhero costume parade at 11.30am, live music and local races.
Turf club chief executive Mindy Powell- Hodges said the day would have a family feel.
“Bring the kids dressed up as their favourite superhero and there’s prizes for that. Mr Incredible and Black Panther will be judging so that will be a bit of fun.”
Ms Powell- Hodges said as well as a sausage sizzle, popcorn, fairy floss, face painting and fun activities, the day would also feature eight local races including the Pallarenda Stakes.
Since taking over as chief executive of the club in September, Ms Powell- Hodges said there had been a strong focus on revamping the infrastructure and landscaping of the Cluden facility.
“The gardens are looking fantastic, it’s absolutely beautiful,” she said.
