Things to do in Murray Bridge: July 30-August 5, 2021

Find out which local events have been postponed or cancelled in the days following South Australia's lockdown.

It might be a case of “make your own fun” this weekend as the uncertainty created by last week’s lockdown has led most local events to be cancelled.

The return of the pedal prix to The Bend Motorsport Park is off, as are River Murray footy and netty for Saturday – more info is listed below.

If you do plan on getting out and about – and supporting your local pubs, cafes and retailers, which is a great idea – you can find the latest restrictions for South Australia at www.police.sa.gov.au.

Essentially, we’re being told to:

  • Wear a mask in indoor public places

  • Try to maintain social distancing between yourself and others

  • Sit down when eating and drinking, instead of moving around

  • Don’t sing or dance

If you know of any local events I’ve missed, let me know!
