May was a lively month in 1985 with the opening of children's performing arts festival Come Out, which is now the oldest event of its kind and known as the DreamBIG festival.
Children marched the streets and participated in dancing and art as part of celebrations.
Early in the month the Eyre Peninsula Tribune recognised returned and fallen soldiers following recent ANZAC Day commemorations across the region.
There were many weddings across the districts, with Cleve pastor Ivan Wittwer conducting his 100th marriage ceremony.
Winter sport had also begun, with the men taking the field in the early weeks of the football season and women taking to the netball courts.
Golf and car racing were also sports of the season.
The Cleve ANZ branch and the Kimba Photgraphic Society held celebrations to mark anniversaries.
