Tamworth Bicentenary Celebration Day
Tamworth Bicentennial Park
Tamworth, NSW, Australia
Sunday, September 2 sees a coming together of the Tamworth community to celebrate all the positive aspects that the city has to offer, in an exciting 200th Birthday celebration.
Based on explorer John Oxley's party reaching and naming Peel's River on September 2, 1818, which soon led to the establishment of Tamworth.
There is a range of activities planned at Tamworth's Bicentennial Park on the Sunday 2 September from 9am to 5pm will see a wide range of entertainment and community representation including music, dance and a wide range of sporting exhibitions will figure largely on the day's entertainment program, with many community organisations also mounting displays.
As one of the events there will be a 8km John Oxley Re-enactment Walk the walk will follow close to a section of Oxley's 1818 expedition to Peel's River for not only those interested in local history, but also for the local walking fraternity.
There will be free bus transport available out to the 10am start and back into town where the other activities will be in operation at Bicentennial Park also with a sausage sizzle.
This is a great activity in which families can participate and also be a part of Tamworth's 200th birthday.
