Things to do in Murray Bridge: October 28- November 3, 2022
All you need to know about the Callington Show, Halloween at the Pool, Coffee with a Cop and more.
The last Sunday of October has rolled around, which means the Callington Show is back, featuring ag shows, rides, live music, exhibitions and show treats galore.
If you have a fear for all things spooky, steer clear of the local swimming centre on Saturday night where Halloween at the Pool will be held.
On the contrary, if Halloween is your vibe, then get your haunted house/coven/lair registered before October 30 for trick or treaters to visit Monday night – if they dare.
Coffee with a Cop will return this Tuesday, too, this time with the dog operations unit and their police dogs.
