Summer fun in parks program
NEW Year’s Eve, an Outdoor Ball and Australia Day celebrations will headline the Rural City of Wangaratta’s 2018/19 Summer in the Parks program.
The program has been launched this week and features both classic returning events and new additions.
It will kick off tomorrow night with the lighting of the Christmas tree in the Riverside Square from 6.30pm.
Large crowds are expected to enjoy the Wangaratta Carols by Candlelight at Merriwa Park this Sunday.
An expanded Garden Series throughout January will include tai chi, yogalates and karate, while Eldorado and Moyhu will become home to pop-up cinemas.
The program is designed to unite community members through sport, music and celebrations according to mayor Dean Rees.
“Council and other community groups put these events on to celebrate what’s great about Wangaratta in summer,” he said.
“What better way to enjoy your summer than heading out to great evening events like the Outdoor Ball, and starting your mornings with some free exercise in the beautiful King George V Gardens. “I’ll see you there.” The full Summer in the Parks program can be accessed online at www.wangaratta. vic.gov.au.
Households will also receive a fridge magnet with program highlights.
