AL­LAN St will be un­recog­nis­able on Fri­day as shops spill into the streets and the an­nual Kyabram Bush Mar­ket gets un­der­way.

With more than 80 stalls ex­pected – and en­ter­tain­ment go­ing on all day – it is ex­pected to be even big­ger and bet­ter than its pre­vi­ous in­car­na­tions.

Mel­bourne Cup hol­i­days and cel­e­bra­tions will be out of the way, the Coun­try Mu­sic Fes­ti­val start­ing the next day and with bar­gains go­ing all day Fri­day Ky and sur­rounds are in party mode.

The ac­tion starts from 9am and Kyabram Cham­ber of Com­merce pres­i­dent Miles Gould said more than 80 stalls will take over the main strip with en­ter­tain­ment and bar­gains ga­lore.

Miles said the bush mar­ket was all about com­mu­nity and the lo­cal econ­omy.

“We know there will be a great at­mos­phere, that has been cen­tral in the past cou­ple of years,” Miles said.

“The kids love it, the par­ents love it, and peo­ple are of­ten walk­ing around hav­ing a look and try­ing to buy things while we’re still set­ting up at seven in the morn­ing.”

The bush mar­ket has long been the brain­child of the cham­ber of com­merce and be­come a ma­jor fix­ture on the lo­cal cal­en­dar.

Con­ve­niently it is also the per­fect op­por­tu­nity to kick start your Christ­mas shop­ping be­cause ev­ery par­tic­i­pat­ing busi­ness will be fea­tur­ing some amaz­ing spe­cials.

Kyabram’s main street will be closed to traf­fic be­tween Church St and Al­bion St from 8 am to 5 pm, al­low­ing KCC mem­ber busi­nesses to set up stalls in the street.

Mark­ing its 38th an­niver­sary this year, the 2018 Kyabram Bush Mar­ket will have hun­dreds of spe­cial of­fers up for grabs from a wide range of re­tail out­lets.

This year more busi­nesses from all over the dis­trict will be join­ing the ac­tion in the main street to pro­vide an even greater range of prod­ucts and bar­gains.

Miles said the event was a “per­fect day out for the whole fam­ily”, with plenty of en­ter­tain­ment on of­fer through­out the day.

“The day is go­ing to be jam-packed with bar­gains and it is an event that re­ally sets Kyabram apart – it’s one of the big win­ners for which the town is known.

“And as we said, it will also be a bril­liant lead-in to the Coun­try Mu­sic Fes­ti­val on the week­end.”
