Super Summer Family Night

Spring into Summer at the Melbourne Greyhounds

Don’t miss our last ‘Family Night’ for 2023 and bucket loads of  FREE stuff and family fun entertainment.

There’s no better place to get a taste of summer than here at the Melbourne Greyhounds. Saturday December 9th, is second of three FREE ‘Family Nights at the Meadows’ that fill our late spring and summer calendar. (The third Family Night will be held in mid February next year. Be sure to sign up to our newsletter to be kept up-to-date on when it will land).

For those who’ve never attended one of family race nights, you’re in for a super surprise. Our last family night, held on Melbourne Cup Eve, saw over 1000 people and hundreds of young families enjoying beautiful weather, FREE carnival food and loads of FREE entertainment (as well as some fantastic greyhound racing). We also gave away over 250 kids showboats and $3000 in prizes.

Our December 9 event will again hold a number of awesome activations and offer plenty of FREE give-aways. Put in the calendar now, let some friends know and get ready to roll into a hot summer with us. For updates and to learn what’s planned be sure to return here or follow us on our Facebook page.
