Line of Lode 140th anniversary

On Tuesday, September 5, from 5pm through to 9pm at Sturt Park, the Council will be throwing a a party in celebration of the 140th anniversary of the discovery of the Line of Lode.

Featuring live music, camel rides, face painting, a sensory zone, and a mining-themed laser light show spectacular to close out the evening, there will also be a multicultural food theme to the event, showcasing different delicacies from all over the world available in the Silver City.

Mexican Kitchen, Outback Thai, Fresh Pizza, Pasties & More, and Carol’s Cake will all be serving up delicious food, while Giovanni & Co serve some of the best coffee available in the Silver City.

“We are really pleased to have them all on board. There is variety there for everybody,” Council Community Development Officer Rachel Merton told the Barrier Truth.

On top of the great food and activities, there will also be live music provided by local Bowden McAllister, and Adelaide band Me n Me Mates.

The Tuesday afternoon time slot is to encourage as many people as possible to come down and enjoy the celebrations.

“Five o’clock is early enough for children of all ages,” Ms Merton says.

“And finishing up at nine, we are mindful not everyone wants a late night on a Tuesday, so we hope it encourages more people to come down.

“There’ll be lots of interesting food to try, live music, camel rides and face painting for the kids, and of course the big laser show to finish.

“Hopefully we see plenty of people in the park to celebrate our city and acknowledge this important milestone in our history,” Ms Merton said.
