TO ENJOY yourself this Easter, you absolutely do not need to leave town, as there is a range of great family fun activities all over the place to delight and relax you.

Easter in the vines

RIVERSANDS are hosting their annual Easter in the Vines festival.

All weekend (April 15-16) there will be live music and entertainment and barbecue facilities available, and Riversands owner David Blacket questioned why anyone would want to go elsewhere.

"It is our annual event, some might even say our signature event, but is really a great opportunity to get friends and family together to relax and have a good time.”

Highlights include free entry, live music by Adam Kilpatrick all weekend, great for listening and dancing to, and wine tasting after the picking season has just finished.

Over the weekend there will also be a special guest appearance by author Patsy Kemp who will be releasing her new book 'The Drovers Daughter' with signed copies available on the day.

WHEN:

Saturday and Sunday

WHERE:

Riversands Winery

Kapunda Fishing Park

THE Kapunda Fishing Park are offering all day jam-packed family entertainment for the four days of Easter, beginning tomorrow morning with the Yabby cook-off and ending on Monday with the final round of the lip-sync battle and yabby race.

On Friday you can delight in competing in the yabby cook off along with the first round of the lip sync battle, bush camp and live music all day.

Saturday boasts markets, fishing opportunities and music.

Easter Sunday kicks off with an Easter egg hunt, Easter bonnet making will transition into the parade and markets and music will round out the day, before a lazy Easter Monday brings the final singing battle, yabby races and live music takes you into the afternoon.

WHEN:

Friday to Monday, April 14-17.

WHERE:

Kapunda Fishing Park

St George Golf Club

IF GOLF is more your style, the St George Golf Club are holding a number of tournaments over the Easter weekend.

The annual Cancer day is on Easter Saturday, a 12hole three person ambrose and organiser Neale O'Brien said "everyone is welcome, including kids.”

"It should be a wonderful day as was last years.”

Deadline for signing up is 10am but the fun will continue all afternoon.

And if your motto is one game of golf is just never enough, head back to the club house on Easter Sunday for a 9 hole Single Stableford.

With a 2.30pm deadline, you can work off all that chocolate care of the Easter Bunny!

To round off the long weekend the golf club are also running a 18 hole Stroke on Easter Monday with a 12.30pm deadline.

Saturday and Sunday
