This weekend’s severe storm and flash flood warnings have forced the organisers of the highly anticipated Forbes Market Day hosted by Forbes Public School to postpone the event to 24 February 2018.
With over 70 high quality market stalls from across the central west region and a jam-packed agenda full of entertainment and fun, the community will have to wait a little longer to attend this fabulous occasion.
The focus of the day will be on family participation and ample amounts of fun and the committee is confident they will meet the brief. “We want to provide an atmosphere where families can come and enjoy a fun morning together. Music from local talent will also look to draw a crowd and add to the festivities on the picturesque lakeside oval,” said spokesperson Linda Van Coller.
“Next year will be our third year running the market and it’s going to be massive. There will also be an even bigger Game Zone for the kids to enjoy,” said Linda. Game Zone tickets will be available for $1 each. This includes a 9-meter water slide (bring a towel), jumping castle, coin toss, dunking machine, pony rides and many more. An animal nursery will also be on the oval all day. Children will have the chance to pat an impressive range of baby animals. Also keep an eye out for the Minions that will be taking over Forbes.
The committee is very appreciative of the community support that they have received. “Forbes is such a fantastic community. The school’s families and local businesses have been overwhelming in their support and we would like to thank every business and individual who has donated their time or goods and services to support our wonderful school,” said School Principal Dafydd Thomas.
