Looking for a way to celebrate Australia Day? Well if you're in town come take part in Australia Day in the City. With a parade, concert, and fireworks, Australia Day in the city is a way to celebrate with old and new Australians.
The parade will have around 3000-4000 participants, all coming from various community groups around Adelaide. It's a great way to celebrate the multiculturalism of the city, and the many different people who call Adelaide home. There are floats, performers, marching bands, and horses. In the past there have been singers, a dragon dance, hula dancers, and showgirls, and they're all joined by a giant inflatable echidna.
The parade makes its way from Victoria Square to Elder Park, where they'll be greeted by the Kaurna welcome and the National Anthem.
The concert kicks off at 7pm, so make sure you get in early to get a good spot. Bring along a picnic rug or deck chairs, and get comfortable along the banks of the River Torrens.In previous years Jessica Mauboy, Stan Walker, Ricki-Lee, and Vanessa Amorosi have all performed, but this year you'll be dancing to the Potbelleez and Wes Carr.
So join Adelaide in celebrating what it means to call Australia home, and have a fun and free night out with the family.
