A heads up for you . . . .
The Queen's Baton Relay is a relay around the world held prior to the beginning of the Commonwealth Games. The Baton carries a message from the Head of the Commonwealth, currently Queen Elizabeth II.
The Relay traditionally begins at Buckingham Palace in London as part of the city's Commonwealth Day festivities. The Queen entrusts the Baton to the first relay runner. At the Opening Ceremony of the Games, the final relay runner hands the Baton back to the Queen or her representative, who reads the message aloud to officially open the Games.
The Queen's Baton Relay is similar to the Olympic Torch Relay.
The Baton Relay will be coming through New Farm between 2 and 4pm on Saturday 31st March. Make sure you don't miss the community celebration event at The Powerhouse Park.
