Moree Services Club will be open for dinner and the 60s, 70s and 80s dress up dance.

Dinner will begin at 6pm and the dance will be running from 8pm onwards.

"There's about 150 people attending the services club on Saturday night," Mr Mullens said.

"It's free, the entertainment is all free that night so they don't need to pay to go into the services club.

"People just buy their own drinks and food."

After the big Saturday night, people can head to the Moree Artesian Aquatic Centre at 11am on the Sunday morning, to relax and continue to catch up in the hot pools and spas baths.

There will also be a night sky tour on Sunday night, beginning at 7pm in the paddock on the corner of Boston Street and Amaroo Drive.

There will also be plenty of other activities happening across the weekend.

On Saturday, the Classic Wallabies will headline a massive day with a match against the Central North Barbarians.
