Things to do in Murray Bridge: February 19-25, 2021

Speedway, The Addams Family, a Deadly Fun Run, a swap meet, author talks and more.

Border closures may have played havoc with a few event schedules, but Murray Bridge Speedway will still hope to put on a good show for the South Australian Wingless Sprints Title this Saturday night.

The event was originally supposed to run over two nights, but will now go as one, with modlites, street stocks and classic speedcars as the supporting categories.

If motor racing’s not your thing, there's theatre, live music and the return of the Rotary Club swap meet this weekend as well.
