New Years at Arno | PHOTOS

Arno Bay marked the beginning of 2019 with the annual New Years Day event, which attracted fantastic numbers. 

There were good numbers in all events, and some great prizes were won.

Young and old participated in the events, which included a swimming race and the most South Australian take on the stein holding competition possible; replacing the stein with an iced coffee for the children.

Brad Wake set a new record in the adult stein holding competition.

The Kingfish Trail sold out early and was a hit with the younger crowd.

The event committee thanked the sponsors for their role in making the event happen.

The group are collaborating with the Arno Bay Progress Association later in the month for a free Australia Day movie night in Turnbull’s Park.
