WOLLONGONG City Council’s Twilight Markets are on this Friday from 5.30 to 8.30pm at Flagstaff Hill and this time the event is all about getting into the festive spirit.
Graham Wilson, a former Four Kinsmen, will provide musical entertainment, including Christmas carols, at the monthly food markets. Santa will also drop by to say hello.
There’ll also be a stall set up for donations to the City of Wollongong Giving Tree and people are encouraged to bring along an unwrapped gift for kids aged between 0-16 years. The presents will be distributed among the region’s disadvantaged children.
Unwrapped presents can also be dropped at the Christmas tree in Council’s Burelli Street Administration building up until Monday December 17. The presents will be distributed by St Vincent de Paul and Anglicare.
The markets will have all the usual food stalls, including Ethiopian stall and the new Iranian cusines. And, as always, the gozleme ladies will be whipping up of their hugely popular mince, feta and spinach snacks.
The remaining dates for the Twilight Markets in 2013 are: Friday January 4, Friday February 1 and Friday March 1. If the wind is too gusty at Flagstaff Hill on any of these dates, the markets will move to Lang Park.
