Hitting town: The planned route of the Queen’s Baton Relay through Yarrawonga.

The Queen’s Baton Relay will arrive in Yarrawonga tomorrow.

The relay will travel from Yarrawonga P-12 College to the foreshore.

There will be plenty of activities, including stalls and musical acts, to keep everyone entertained before and after the official festivities.

Special guest speaker will be Commonwealth Games shooting ambassador James Willett, an Olympian and Commonwealth Games competitor, who will also carry the baton during the relay.

Other notable baton bearers include Olympic bronze medallist Dean Pullar and 2017 Moira Shire Young Citizen of the Year Nick Megaritty.

Moira Shire Mayor Libro Mustica said it was wonderful the relay was visiting Yarrawonga.

‘‘I am immensely proud of the shire’s baton bearers and the role they will take when the Queen’s Baton comes to Yarrawonga,’’ he said.

‘‘Many have dedicated their lives to improving the lives of others. Some have accomplished great feats and others are working towards realising their dreams.

‘‘Being a baton bearer recognises all of this and more.

‘‘I encourage everyone to support these great people in our community and to share a memorable moment with the Queen’s Baton.’’

Queen’s Baton Relay activities will kick off at noon.
