There’s lots to get you out of the house and entertained this weekend.
Organise your weekend with this handy hit list.
1. Uranquinty’s village garage sale with a colonial twist
Uranquinty is organising a sale combined with a colonial costume theme.
There will be a number colonial features happening around the village on the day as well as regular garage sales.
Residents and visitors can expect a convict walk, police chases and colonial games like apple bobbing and sack races.
The event is set to kick off this Saturday from 9am with the garage sales and maps are available at Uanquinty Bakery.
From 10.30am reenactments begin in Morgan Street.
2. See Wagga on the big screen in The Merger
The Wagga-based film The Merger is currently screening at Forum 6 Cinemas.
The movie tells the tale of a struggling, small town footy team that recruits refugees to survive.
Reuniting the crew that created Backyard Ashes, director Mark Grentell and producer Anne Robinson joined forces with Damian Callinan once again to adapt to the screen his award-winning, stage show of the same name.
3. Legacy Concert
Three of Wagga’s iconic music groups will be joining forces to help raise funds for Legacy Wagga in two performances on Saturday.
The Australian Army Band Kapooka will be supported by local singing groups Murrumbidgee Magic Chorus and Wagga City Rugby Male Choir for what the organisers promise will be a night for everyone to enjoy.
Ticket sales will help support Wagga Legacy to continue the amazing work in supporting the families of the Australian service men and women.
