Monday Ekka Holiday going ahead as planned in Somerset
THE Somerset Regional Council public holiday on Monday August 9 will go ahead as planned, even though the Ekka will not take place this year due to Covid-19, Mayor Graeme Lehmann has said.
“This public holiday was gazetted over a year ago, and though Covid has changed things, we will go ahead with the public holiday, as arranged,” Cr Lehmann said.
“I encourage everyone to take advantage of the long weekend and enjoy the August weather, and hopefully the Ekka will be back bigger and better next year.”
