All revved up for a bumper Easter weekend in Mildura Power to the people MILDURA’S bumper, horsepower- fuelled Easter weekend is living up to expectations, with thousands of visitors having already arrived in the district. The majority of accommodation, whether it be caravan parks, budget hotels and motels or high-end accommodation is already booked out, while many popular camping spots along the Murray River have been occupied for more than a week. The Easter long weekend is the busiest and most lucrative four days of the year for Mildura, injecting an estimated $5million into the economy through visitor numbers. The tourism sector estimates that about 12,000 visitors converge on the district over Easter. • BEN PISCIONERI’S story continues on Page 2 • ALL FIRED UP: Sunraysia Drag Racing Association president Robert McDonald is on double duty this weekend, not only helping organise the association’s massive Supercharged Shootout at the Sunset Strip on Easter Saturday, but racing in the event as well.
