Pub crawl taps into tram help

The annual Boulderfest pub crawl is expected to bring historic Burt Street to life tomorrow, with locals encouraged to dust off their lederhosen for the occasion.

Hosted by Boulder Promotions and Development Association, Boulderfest typically sees locals turn up in their thousands.

For the first time, the Loopline tram will be picking up passengers to help make transport between the five participating venues easier.

BPDA co-ordinator Corinne Rule said she hoped the tram facilities would also encourage people to visit different pubs and bars on the day.

“We are trying to get people to go to all of them instead of staying at one,” she said.

“Especially because there are restrictions still, we do want to keep people moving so other people can get into each place.

“Go do a visit of different venues you haven’t been to before and have a bit of fun.” Ms Rule said there had been some concern the event would be postponed because of the COVID-19 pandemic and she was pleased restrictions had eased to allow celebrations to go ahead.

“For the pubs, this is their busiest day of the year so of course they didn’t want to see it cancelled and we have done our best,” she said. “We have to keep within the rules, but it is going ahead.

“I have done the run-around with the police and talking to the Health Department and the council with regard to what we need to do.”

The Albion Shamrock Hotel, Boulder Ex-Servicemen’s Club, Broken Hill Hotel, Grand Hotel and the Recreation Hotel will all participate in the event from 10am-5pm tomorrow.

Boulder Market Day will also be in full swing, with steins available for purchase under the rotunda at Loopline Park.
