Markets are an all time favourite, and right now is peak market season. With the weather warming up many vendors are firing up their food trucks, or preparing a decorative craft stall.
There's a plenitude of tantalising offerings, and many reasons to head out on a Saturday evening. For the Forrestfield locals in particular, this Saturday is time to head down to Heritage College for the familiar Twilight Fair. It's been going for many years, and each time offering new ideas and better attractions. This year promises to be a big one, with several features that promise to be great value for kids and adults.
The Twilight fair will be open from 4-8pm, and has got you covered with a range of cuisines. There will be Moroccan and authentic Indian curries, as well as a juice bar, raw food, and a coffee stand. There will also be a cafe serving a variety of food and hot drinks, and the classics are all there- donuts, sausage sizzle, fresh made pies and soft drinks. Something to take home is also offered with a range of handmade cakes, preserves, sweets and nuts.
Among the 'sideshow alley' kids games, will be a Winter wonderland. Complete with a mini forest, falling snow, and blizzards every hour, this will area will create a true white Christmas experience that will no doubt be the highlight of the fair.
With Spring here, many keen gardeners will be putting in some new plants while the weather is opportune. There will be plenty of flowers, veggie plants and gift-worthy succulents for sale at the garden stall. Other notable stalls include dream catchers, henna designs, happy boxes and a smash-em-up stall. You also might recognise PonyCycles, which have been featured this year at various shopping centres, and are a favourite with younger kids.
No doubt there will be many stalls that haven't been mentioned, and entry is free so it's worth a quick visit at least. Parking is free and available. For further updates and information check out the Facebook page.
