Anzac Day services in Tauranga
Thousands of people are expected to gather for ANZAC Day services across the city this Thursday.
This year’s events continue to honour the sacrifice so many men and women made not only at Gallipoli, but also other conflicts in which New Zealand has been involved.
This year’s Anzac Day Civic Service will be held at 9am on Thursday, April 25 at Memorial Park, Tauranga.
In the event of bad weather, the civic memorial service will be held in the Queen Elizabeth Youth Centre and the parade will not take place.
In a statement from the Tauranga City Council, it says free Park and Ride services will be available for the Tauranga Civic Memorial Service and the Mount Maunganui Dawn Service.
"The free Park and Ride service for Tauranga’s Memorial Civic Service will be available from Tauranga Boys’ College on Devonport Road to Memorial Park between 8am and 8.40am, with returning buses immediately following the Civic Memorial Service.
"There is no additional car parking at Memorial Park, however PAK’n SAVE located on Cameron Road, between Ninth and Tenth Avenues, have made their above ground car park available for people attending the Anzac Day Civic Memorial Service. Car parking for mobility cardholders ONLY will be available outside the Queen Elizabeth Youth Centre."
