Music in the Park celebration to honour Anzacs
IF YOU'RE a fan of vintage military vehicles, big band sounds and family days in the sun, Browns Park at North Ipswich is the place to be tomorrow afternoon.
The Railway RSL sub-branch, Legacy and Ipswich City Council have joined forces to organise the Music in the Park celebration, which is part of the city's Centenary of Anzac commemorations, as well as being a free day of fun for families.
The Ipswich City Big Band and Bremer State High School Band will perform in the rotunda, to a backdrop of Ken Gehrke's lovely 1917 First World War replica Model T Ford, and Maurie Currey's perfectly restored Second World War, 1944 Jeep.
The Gatton Light Horse will also be in attendance - decked out in full kit - while Legacy Ipswich will be holding a drink stall to help raise important funds to support local war widows and orphans.
Ipswich is part-way through commemorating the centenary of the First World War, with more events and competitions planned.
The Music in the Park event was timed as something of a prelude to Remembrance Day.
The celebrations kick off at midday and go through to late afternoon.
Entry is free.
