May the Fourth Be With You Star Wars Day
The 4th May is a special day! Or put it another way - May the Fourth Be With You on Saturday May the Fourth (Star Wars Day)! This will be on from 8.30 am until 1.00 pm and it will be a big Elwood market. These markets are held at the Elwood Community Market, Scott St, Elwood.
Organisers are taking advantage of the pun on words and this date and creating a Star Wars themed market. Why not wear your Star Wars outfits or tee shirts or anything else. There will be a prize raffle for everyone who dresses up!
Come on down for an early coffee and enjoy the barbecue food delights (including a sausage sizzle and their renowned and famous burgers with the lot, veggie burgers and spinach and ricotta rolls). Or else you can always try some homemade treats, gourmet pastries and bread.
Bring the children along and buy some books from the bookstall. Or perhaps go see the face painter or visit many of the stalls with goodies just for children. There will be a huge kids market too (run by children), selling the obvious - children's stuff!
You can also stock up on goodies for home, sort through stalls full of:
There is a special hall for artisan gifts, art, books for the big children and the famous cake stall featuring a honey joy or chocolate brownie and more!
There will also be music which will be played live on two stage areas whilst you wander amongst the stalls. DiMattina coffee will start to roll at 8: 30 am and most people who have been before know just how good this coffee is.
Come along and have a chat and do some shopping - it is great therapy and just great fun. The markets will stay open until 1.00 pm.
Also so that your best friend does not miss out, dogs are allowed as long as they stay on a lead and are well behaved and friendly (the dogs I am talking about, not the kids!) Remember however to bring your own bags and coffee cups and keep the cup (or grab an ugly mug for a discount).
There is heaps to buy and this event is definitely environmentally friendly. There is also an ATM on site. This market is run by volunteers, parents and staff of Elwood Primary School. All profits made at the event will be going to the Primary School.
