“Race ‘n’ Taste” for the Anzac Day long weekend

By johnboy - 14 April 2009 10

I’ve just had a moderately interesting media release drift across my desk.

The “OutInCanberra Race ‘n’ Taste” is kicking off for the first time on the Anzac Day holiday Monday at the racecourse Thoroughbred Park.

Here’s the blurb:

    Offering something for every level of enthusiast, taste and budget, OutInCanberra Race ‘n’ Taste will boast a wide variety of multicultural and locally produced food to indulge, or just graze on at the event.

    Families are also well catered for, with children’s entertainment, face painting and jumping castles.

It’ll run from 10-5, entry free.

What’s Your opinion?

It’s common practice that when a public holiday falls on a weekend day, the holiday day shifts to a Monday?

Only the ACT and WA are declaring Monday a Public Holiday. All other States/Territories are not.

But this has now gone completely off the original topic. If anyone wants to discuss the merits of the ACT declaration of a Public Holiday on the 27th perhaps they should start a new thread.

Anzac Day, other than in the ACT, has taken over what used to be Good Friday’s role – a day of contemplation. It definitely should be on the day only. Let’s see if the government corrects this next year.

Public holiday assignment is hardly a matter for these event organisers guys.

Point taken JB. If we must have a public holiday off of the actual date for ANZAC Day, at least there will be things to do.

Out In Canberra? Isn’t that a gay thing?

Probably not – just another example of straights pinching symbols and terminology from the gay community.

I thought ANZAC day was on Saturday 25th. Why is there a public holiday on Monday 27th?
The idea of a public holiday on the day was to enable people to attend services and marches to commemorate those who fought and died for their country. The fact that it falls on a Saturday should not warrant having a public holiday on the Monday.
