Top Free Things to Do in Adelaide - April 2016
Honouring the Anzac Day Spirit: Re-enacting the First Contingent at Glenelg
Wasn't Easter a fantastic break? If only we could have Easter holidays every weekend, there would be 100% job satisfaction and an end to workplace absenteeism. Maybe.
At least we have another long weekend coming up, with Anzac Day falling on a Monday. It's a great chance to escape the city and enjoy the unique character of SA country towns from Meningie's centenary celebrations to the Kapunda Farm Fair. The April school holidays are also a traditional time for parents to take a break, so we have lined up plenty of school holidays activities for families.

SA history fans will already be gearing up for next month's bonanza of fun things to do in South Australia's History Festival. The program is due for release soon and some events are in demand already, but if you can't wait then check out the National Trust's Heritage Festival which runs from April 16 to May 29.
Free things to do in April include the zany Gravity Festival at Macclesfield, an Heirloom Festival in the Adelaide Botanic Gardens, and Nutella Palooza. All are free and are fun for kids and adults - but I wonder if there is a Vegemite festival on the horizon?
Seeing the 40th birthday celebrations at the Military Vehicles Museum will be simply spectacular, with cannons firing, rides in a tank or Saracen armoured car - there's even a market. But if you're looking for something warm and cuddly then head for the Adelaide Animal Expo at the showgrounds.
Food truck fans who follow Fork on the Road will be familiar with Sneaky Pickle, which has just opened a new restaurant in Adelaide. No need to chill out on the streets when you can sit down to enjoy their American style creations.
Our writers on the Fleurieu Peninsula have been digging the district to discover fun things to do in Yankallilla and Myponga which will be perfect for the Anzac Day weekend. If you live locally then don't miss the chance to share produce with Grow Free.
