Thousands of flemington residents are travelling to Melbourne in an effort to catch a glimpse of the Melbourne Cup’s fi우리카지노nal four on Friday night.

The AFL’s competition has not hosted a home finals since 2004 and this is the first game to be won by the Melbourne Cup’s new entrants.

Hundreds of people are arriving for the game to watch the fireworks that will be fire우리카지노d at 12.50pm.

It is not yet known if the cup will go up in flames or not but it will be a night filled with music and games.

Derek Liddle, 25, is one of the organisers of the event.

He says it is another chance to see the city he grew up in and how it has changed since Melbourne Cup was introduced.

“I grew up in Flemington. A lot of us from other parts of the state, I think maybe we might just get the chance to sit back and watch this and make sure it goes down really, really, realjarvees.comly well,” he said.

“It’s going to be big as it will probably be the biggest city ever to host the Melbourne Cup.”

The Melbourne Cup, played in a three-match series, has been staged every four years for seven years.

It started in 2000 with a grand final at Colombo, after which it relocated to a more open venue, and then on to the new site, Melburn, in 2001.

The cup was then moved to Melbourne in 2011 after its traditional venue at Colombo became unsuitable.

Liddle says it will once again be a big opportunity for locals who normally don’t get to see a major sporting event.

“It’s going to be an amazing way to go see the club they grew up with, but the city they grew up in,” he said.

There are plans for a full-sized giant balloon being released for the game, complete with fans.

The Cup of Nations is now celebrating three-decades in Australia.
