Anzac Day is a day to remember the fallen and living war veterans. It is a time to remember the sacrifice of the willing and not so willing soldiers of the past and present.
Every town has a way of remembering them and I don’t mean a game of 2 up in the pub. Wollongong and its suburbs have a number of dawn service on Anzac Day however they all come together for a March through Wollongong CBD at 10am.
Where hundreds of people line Church Street and Burelli Street to clap and cheer on the veterans that participate in the March.
The veterans come in all forms: vintage cars, buggies and walking. Last year we had fly overs as well.
You could really tell that as many people that could came out to show there support and it is really a lovely way to celebrate it. The only let down was the rubbish from the night before and knowing that the next morning the streets would look like.
