Hospitality businesses of Merimbula took a quick break away from their normal working day, spending their Monday with a touch of Christmas spirit at the Sapphire Coast Turf Club on December 3.
Restaurants Race Day was perfect for hospitality staff to kick back before the busy rush of the holiday season.
Merimbula Aquarium Wharf Restaurant, Duci's Italian Restaurant, TrendSETTER Hair Studio, Eve O'Brien Properties, Vicolo Merimbula and the Waterfront Cafe were the main sponsors of the day.
“It is great to put something on for hospitality businesses who are normally working, they can let their hair down before the busy Christmas period,” Jess Ryan of the Sapphire Coast Turf Club said.
Looking ahead to the next race meet, Ms Ryan said the Bendigo Bank Boxing Day Pambula Cup is “always massive.”
“The Boxing Day races attract people from all over, we are expecting 1800 people to walk through the gates,” she said.
