Autumn is a lovely season.
It’s a great time in Echuca Moama as we put the hectic pace of summer behind us, settle into the cooler weather, light the fire and throw on a jumper.
A change of season brings a raft of new events for us all to enjoy.
If you like a bit of activity in your life head out to Cohuna for the annual Bridge to Bridge swimming, riding, running and kayaking spectacular all in aid of a great cause, the Cohuna Hospital.
If you love a spot of fishing, Echuca United is kicking oﬀ March with a fishing competition at Morning Glory River Resort. With thousands of dollars in prizes up for grabs including a new boat, it is well worth checking out their Facebook page to get in on the action.
A change of date for the Echuca Cup to March gets the heart pumping and the crowd roaring that little bit earlier this year and because nobody does racing quite like Echuca, the day is sure to be a great fun filled day, whether you are with family or friends.
The $80,000 Moama Bowling Club Cup is sure to entice a great racing field.
To keep the adrenaline pumping Kyabram has their rodeo which has history of being one of the longest running rodeo events in the country.
Flavours Festival is always a big hit and this year with a few new initiatives in place, 2018 looks set to be bigger and better than ever. There is of course all the usual great local produce, food, wine and entertainment but this year there is also a special chance to share a meal and chat with a producer.
If you like to continue with a sedate pace and love a good bit of theatre, the Echuca Moama Theatre Company is going all out this year and bringing Phantom of the Opera to the stage — Phantom is recognised around the world for its dramatic storyline and stunning music — tickets are available
from the Paramount Theatre. Don’t miss this once in a lifetime opportunity.
Then there is of course a range of other events including the Steam Rally, Easter in Echuca, Lockington Tractor Rally, the Wedding Expo and the Rochester Fine Art Festival. The warm weather
may be starting to disappear but there is no reason to stay inside — there are plenty of great things on in Echuca Moama, get out and about and check them all out, I am sure you won’t be disappointed.
