Things to do in Murray Bridge: June 10-16, 2022
Over the Queen's Birthday long weekend there is plenty to look forward to, including the SA Truck and Ute Show, interleague football, Jazz in the Hills and more.
This week we look forward to enjoying the Queen’s Birthday long weekend, with Monday being a public holiday and plenty to do.
On Saturday, interleague football will be at Johnstone Park, kicking off – get it – at 9.30am with games all throughout the day.
Grab the girls on Saturday night for Australian performer Amity Dry’s cabaret 39 Forever at Murray Bridge Town Hall, a show about Dry’s quest to stay forever young that will bring you to tears – hopefully of laughter.
Mannum’s annual truck and ute show is this Sunday, too, with entrants coming from all over the country to show off the best of their trucks, utes and four-wheel drives.
