It’s time to celebrate a birthday as Moranbah has a second chance to commemorate its 50th anniversary this May Day long weekend.

Isaac Regional Council Mayor Anne Baker said everyone who, at one time or another, called Moranbah home, is invited to come and join in on the four-day party.

“The planned celebrations in 2020 were put on hold due to COVID-19, but a global pandemic didn’t extinguish the desire to celebrate, and the weekend celebrations have been picked up 12-months on,” Mayor Baker said.

“Council is proud to partner with Moranbah the Good Old Days and local community groups to present the long weekend celebration.

“Moranbah has reached its golden jubilee and we are encouraging the community to celebrate what makes Moranbah so unique for its birthday.

“We are a community with a proud history, steeped in a diverse and active lifestyle.

“And while the town itself has so much to offer, what is most special about Moranbah is the people who have lived and worked here. These celebrations are for you.”

Community events will run from Friday, 30 April 2021 to Monday, 3 May 2021, culminating in the Labour Day march on the Monday morning.

Mayor Baker said the May Day long weekend is an important weekend, recognising the victories of better working conditions for workers, which is reflective of Moranbah’s history as a town built to support the resources sector.

“It is great to see so many people, groups and organisations support the community they are involved in by hosting events,” she said.

“What better way to acknowledge and say thank you to the community and people who have made the last 50 years of Moranbah so great.”
