April 25th is a day that we all get together to remember those who have fought and served in the armed forces.
Attending an Anzac Day service or parade with your family is a great way to pay your respects, but also an opportunity for our kids to learn more about the history of the country they live in, and those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for it.
If you're still looking for an Anzac Day service to attend in your local area, then check out this awesome list of Local Suburb Day Services and Marches compiled by Families Magazine. It is in alphabetical order by suburb and a wonderful resource of finding out what services are near you.
If you were hoping to attend a service within the CBD, the Anzac Day Parade will be held starting on Adelaide street from 10am to 1pm. It is a free event to honour the veterans. There will also be a Dawn Service held at 4.28am, at the Shrine of Remembrance in Anzac Square on Ann Street. There will also be screens broadcasting the event at ANZAC Square, Post Office Square, King George Square and Queens Street Mall.
RSL's Queensland also has a list of over 500 Day Services and Marches conducted by RSL Sub Branches in towns and cities throughout Queensland.
If you were looking for more active involvement for your kids this year, local libraries in Brisbane have organised poppy making sessions for little ones where they can learn a little bit more about what ANZAC Day means. You can find information about this here.
