After missing out in 2020 Mount Isa Anzac Day services are back for 2021 with registration needed to take part in the parade and a new route for the day's march.
Council is assisting the Mount Isa RSL Sub-branch to facilitate the event on Sunday, April 25,which will include a Dawn Service at 6am at the Cenotaph on the front lawn of the Civic Centre, followed by a Gunfire Breakfast in the Civic Centre auditorium.
The Anzac Day Parade is from 9.30am, and a Morning Service will be held at the Cenotaph from 10am.
Those interested in being a parade participant, or attending the Gunfire Breakfast, are encouraged to put their names down by filling out the relevant registration form.
The forms can be found by going to www.mountisa.qld.gov.au/events and clicking on the "Anzac Day 2021 Services and Parade" link.
The route for this year's parade has changed and it will no longer go down Miles St or Rodeo Dr.
Instead marshalling will now occur at the corner of West and Isa St.
The parade will go straight down West St to the Council car park near the Grace St bridge and will then return to the Cenotaph via the back of the library.
Between 9am and 10am, West Street between Isa Street and Grace Street will be closed to vehicular traffic for the parade, while a section of West Street will be closed to traffic between 5am and noon for the safety of spectators and participants in the services and parade.
Both services will be livestreamed on Council's Facebook page at www.facebook.com/mountisacitycouncil
Council said no contact tracing is required for spectators of either the parade or services but people were encouraged to practice social distancing and to not attend if they are feeling unwell or have been in contact with COVID-19 or a declared hotspot.
