Fair's fun & festivities help SA farmers
Geographically the region in the lower part of the Murray River Basin in South-Eastern South Australia is known as The Murraylands. The area stretches approximately 130 kilometres north-east of Adelaide and south to the beginning of Lake Alexandrina. There are several major towns within the region, however, the towns with the largest population base are Murray Bridge and Mannum. In recent years, the region has been plagued with extensive drought, which has affected the economy.
On Sunday 30th September 2018, the region is celebrating the Murraylands Fair. Proceeds from a gold coin entry will be distributed to Helping SA Farmers. The event is to be held at the Murray Bridge Racing Club at Maurice Road, Murray Bridge and commence at 9.00am.
The day is set to be a fabulous event for the whole family with 80 stallholders selling homemade treats, handmade goods and unique products and food and drinks. Children are catered as well with games to keep them entertained. There will also be five free coffees to be given away on the day and to be in the running to receive a free coffee, simply invite your friends to the event and share the Facebook event to your Facebook page. You must attend the event to redeem the free coffee.
