THERE is plenty planned for everyone this Australia Day.
The Ulladulla Milton Lions Club has worked hard to bring together a day of celebrations at Mollymook Beach to mark Australia Day 2013, with something sure to please everyone.
Organiser Greg Best is encouraging everyone to come along and be part of the community celebration.
“Bring your family and friends to celebrate Australia Day at Mollymook Beach Reserve,” Mr Best urged.
“We want to make certain there is something for everyone and make sure there’s plenty on offer this year for kids.”
To entertain and enthral younger family members this year will be the ever popular Rotary jumping castle and the Lions merry-go-round along with a new addition – a farm animal nursery.
The Farmyard Friends exhibition will include lambs, ducks and chickens for the kids to get close to.
For music fans the day will include live performances throughout the event, including performances from the finalists in the Times Youth Music Scholarship.
Finalists Brianna Laird, David Robertson, Suzie Harris and Ben McCormick will all perform in the hopes of sharing in the $3500 prize money.
“You can be assured of an entertaining day, these talented young local performers will show skill and abilities beyond their years,” Mr Best said.
Times journalist Karisa McCauley this week caught up with finalists Brianna and David with profiles on the musicians featured in the Show Times section.
Bargain hunters will be entertained for hours, searching for that special something among the stalls at the Lions Club Beach Markets.
With more than 110 stalls, the markets will feature a huge range of arts and crafts, new and used goods, plants, home wares, clothing and jewellery.
Petrol heads will get a big kick out of the Milton Ulladulla Vintage and Classic Car Club display with 50 unique vintage and classic cars on show.
And for the entire community, the celebration of this year’s outstanding citizens will be held, along with a citizenship ceremony and a flag raising ceremony.
With the heat of summer here and fine weather forecast, the Lions will have plenty of shelter on hand to help people escape the heat.
Sheltered seating will be located in front of the entertainment stage.
The event is hosted by the Ulladulla Milton Lions Club and supported by Shoalhaven City Council.
