Family Friendly ANZAC Day Overnight Vigil | City of Playford | 24 & 25 Apr 2022

Family Friendly ANZAC Day Overnight Vigil and Dawn Service at Smithfield.

Want to teach your kids about ANZAC Day, but struggle to get them ready in time for a 6am Dawn Service?

Held on Sunday 24 April from 7:30pm till 8:30 pm, the City of Playford’s ANZAC Day Overnight Vigil belongs to the city’s young people, and is the perfect way to teach your kids about the importance of commemorating our ANZACs – and still be in bed at a reasonable hour.

The Overnight Vigil is coordinated by local service groups including Ridley District Scouts, Playford District Girl Guides, St John Ambulance Cadets, Dalkeith Country Fire Service Cadets and Elizabeth Pathfinders Club. An opening ceremony marks the beginning of the Overnight Vigil which sees community groups guard the memorial, known as the cenotaph.

Dawn Service: Monday 25 April 2022 | 6am – 7am
