The countdown to Christmas has begun and Burdekin Shire Council is celebrating this merry month with the launch of the Christmas Twilight Markets.
Community Development Manager Tony Vaccaro said the first of the Christmas Twilight Markets would be held at Watsons Green, Home Hill, on Thursday, December 3 from 6pm-8pm.
“We’ve had a great response from community groups, market stall holders and businesses who want to be involved in the markets,” he said.
“There will be a variety of stalls on offer as well as live entertainment with Stephen Scuderi, a special guest appearance of the Silver Links Line Dancers, and amusements for the children, including Christmas Story Time with Jackie and a new Frozen-themed jumping castle.
“This is a great opportunity for residents to do their Christmas shopping and support our local community groups and businesses during the festive season.
“We hope that the Burdekin community will get behind this new event and help spread Christmas cheer.
“Don’t forget to Buy Local First this festive season.”
The Twilight Markets will also be held at the Burdekin Theatre Forecourt, Ayr, on Thursday December 10 and 17 from 6pm-8pm.
