The popular West Ryde Easter Celebrations are back in 2021, with a new covid-safe format and location!
This year there’s two main parts to the celebrations – an Easter Concert for young kids, with colouring-in and bonnet competitions, in the morning and then a singing contest in the afternoon. Plus, this much loved family-friendly Easter event is moving to the other side of the train line, to the lovely Anzac Park, which has a fun playground.
