Wear orange and white and support and celebrate peace at the Orange and White Peace Day at Robelle Domain, Springfield Central on Sunday, 28th April 2019 from 3pm.

The Orange and White Peace Day is hosted by the Gandhi Salt March Limited (GSML)to celebrate International Leader, Mahatma Gandhi's Service to humanity and raise awareness of those teachings with a specific focus on world peace, non-violence and inclusiveness.

A centrepiece of the event is dinner on the grassy greens of Springfield's Robelle Domain where visitors are invited to bring their own dinner, or food will be available from food trucks. Robelle Domain is a signature recreational site in Springfield with a 5,000 capacity amphitheatre. The site even has the Mahatma Gandhi Inspirational Bridge. Perfect for this event.
