The countdown to the Forbes Market Day hosted by the Forbes Public School P&C is almost finally over. The gates will officially open to the community on Saturday, 17th November at 9am. Showcasing more than 60 high quality market stalls from across the Central West region, the event will also include a jam-packed agenda full of entertainment and fun.
The focus of the day is on family participation and ample amounts of fun and the committee is confident they have met the brief.
“We wanted to provide an atmosphere where families could 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 school’s luscious green oval,” said spokesperson Linda Van Coller.
“This is our fourth year running the market and this year’s market is massive. We have also added an even bigger Game Zone for the kids to enjoy,” said Linda.
Game Zone tickets will be available for $1 each. This includes a jumping castle, coin toss and many more.
The committee is very appreciative of the community support that they have received.
“The school’s families and local businesses have been overwhelming in their support this year and we would like to thank everyone who has donated their time or goods and services to support our wonderful school,” said School Principal, Dafydd Thomas.
There will be a raffle drawn on the day with a very impressive first prize being a YCF 50A Two Wheeler 50cc; second prize a BBQ basket and third prize a family hamper.
Tickets will be available for purchase on the day and are $2 each or three for $5. Kristen’s Dance Studio and Kumiai Ryu Forbes are amongst the performances featured on the day. As well as Australian National Busking Championship runners-up Hannah Dunn and Anabelle van Wyk.
Everyone is invited to join this great community event from 9am to 1pm next Saturday. Gold coin entry.
