There’s a record 60 and more events and activities to be staged in the three Copper Coast towns over 8 days, and all looks set to again attract 35,000-plus crowds, due to our fantastic and committed local KL committee, organisations, clubs and conveners.

Thanks to new major sponsor Drakes Supermarkets the “Drakes Foodland Moonta Parade and Street Party” on 22 May 2015—staged by Moonta Progress Association and Moonta National Trust—will feature the Procession, Maypole and Furry Dancing, the giant pasty bake-off, the Band of the South Australia
Police, and the official wel-come in Queen Square.
