Student driven Twilight Fair to offer relaxed fun
BY TATE SPITERI
MYRTLEFORD P-12 College’s biannual Twilight Fair will return for its second instalment next Friday November 9.
Running from 4pm through to 8pm the fair is set to offer a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere for parents, students, younger children and families.
One of the key organisers, Bernadette Hays, from the P-12 College’s parent club said the event was largely student driven.
“Each class has their own stall, and they came up with all the ideas and help run to it,” she said.
“The seniors make it a part of all their classwork, they have to work out everything- the economics class are doing the costs and projections and the VCAL kids are making stuff and doing all the other hands on parts of it.”
Included in the VCAL and MYCAL students’ creations is a Mini Golf Course, Giant Kerplunk and Sponge Trough where students will have the chance to soak their teachers, parents and friends.
Year nine students will also again run a haunted house, which Ms Hays described as one of the most popular stalls in the 2016 edition.
“The students dress up as ghosts and goblins and scare the little kids as they go through it, it’s a lot of fun and laughs,” she said.
The timing of the festival has again been placed on the weekend of the Bright Rod Run in the hope of capitalising on the added traffic.
“It was very busy last yeara lot of people went straight from the school bell to the fair and were still there at 8.30 at night,” Ms Hays said.
“We have put a lot of advertising around the Snow Road, and Yack Road and out along the Great Alpine Road so hopefully lots of people driving through see there’s something on and pop in.”
Dinner is available on the night with food stalls including a barbecue, spring rolls, pasta and Vietnamese dishes as well as treats such as fairy floss and toffee apples.
“The little kids just love being there and being involved, it’s very affordable with nothing costing more than a gold coin donation,” Ms Hays added.
“There’s so many things for the kids to do and it just gets a lot of people together.
“It’s relaxing for parents and a lot of fun for kids.”
