Twi­light fair’s al­lur­ing

Matamata Chronicle - - Out&about - TERESA HAT­TAN

The Mata­mata Twi­light Fair will be a great place to buy Christ­mas presents, or­gan­is­ers say.

The fair will be held in­side Headon Sta­dium and at Pohlen Park on Satur­day, Novem­ber 28 from 5pm-9pm.

Or­gan­is­ers held a mar­ket last Novem­ber and De­cem­ber in the Mata­mata Me­mo­rial Cen­tre and found it was well re­ceived. ‘‘We thought in­stead of hav­ing one once a month like the Satur­day morn­ing [mar­ket], we’d have it once or twice a year to keep it more of a spe­cial event,’’ or­gan­iser Laura Man­ning said.

The or­gan­is­ers all have hob­bies in­clud­ing pho­tog­ra­phy, art and craft.

‘‘We just wanted to get them out there and help oth­ers in town,’’ Laura said.

The twi­light mar­ket will pro­vide the op­por­tu­nity for all of th­ese peo­ple to come and show their wares ahead of the busy Christ­mas sea­son.

Any­one want­ing to carry out fundrais­ing is wel­come to ap­proach the or­gan­is­ers.

Food stalls such as a pizza food truck, spin­ning spuds and hangi are al­ready booked.

Or­gan­is­ers would love to see fam­i­lies ven­ture down to the twi­light fair for din­ner.

A bouncy cas­tle, rides, mu­si­cians and buskers will pro­vide plenty of en­ter­tain­ment for the whole fam­ily.

For more in­for­ma­tion and to reg­is­ter your in­ter­est in hav­ing a stall, see the Mata­mata Twi­light Fair Face­book page.
