The most widely publicised event is the "Slow Down" Slow Down is an annual Australian rules football match held at the end of the regular season, with teams drawn mostly from ex-AFL and SANFL players. The players competing are loosely aligned to the two Adelaide-based AFL sides: Adelaide Crows and Port Adelaide Power. The name "Slow Down" is a play on words to the local football derby between Adelaide and Port Adelaide, which is promoted as a "Showdown". For a gold coin entrance fee spectators enjoy a lighthearted game where entertainment is more the aim than the actual outcome on the scoreboard. Attendance in 2005 was over 30,000.
