There’s plenty to do in the region this weekend, especially if you love trucks and car racing, dancing like nobody is watching, live music and community and family fun.

Goulburn has its weekly Greyhound Races today (Friday 8 April) and, later on, Bom Funk is hopping into the Easter spirit with a disco to have kids dancing with the Easter Bunny.

Kicking off the weekend, super trucks are back for Round Two of the Motor Race Series at Wakefield Park.

Saturday starts with the Forest Festival at the Eurobodalla Botanic Gardens featuring a bright and beautiful Wattle Walk. There’s also a Roller Disco in Goulburn and a community day in Jerrabomberra with a BBQ and plenty of fun for the family.

Battle of the Bands will be taking place in Moruya as a part of Youth Week and best-selling children’s author Andy Jones will be making an appearance at a kids’ workshop in Goulburn.
