Twilight market has carnival feel
IT'S a market with a difference, and it's being held in Yamba this New Year's Day.
The Yamba Twilight Street Market prides itself on its carnival atmosphere and range of entertainment for people of all ages.
Rotary Club of Yamba secretary Lyn Watson said the market is the Rotary Club's major annual fundraiser.
"I love how all the locals and the tourists come together to enjoy a fun-filled twilight evening.
"And they're supporting a local community group at the same time ... our fundraising enables us to do better things in the community."
"People can still go out and do what they want to do, but then come and enjoy some family time in the afternoon," she said.
Mrs Watson said the Rotary Club encouraged local stall holders to sell their goods at the market.
"The stall holders bring a wonderful carnival atmosphere to Yamba St," Mrs Watson said.
"Clarence Valley Council has been working very closely with us to ensure the success of our carnival."
Mrs Watson also thanked local businesses for donating prizes and vouchers.
The market will run on New Year's Day from 6-9pm.
Stallholders will line the road of Yamba St, Yamba.
The Iluka Markets will also be held on New Year's Day.
The extra market will give visitors the chance to shop their way into the New Year.
A variety of stalls will be set up on the Iluka Sports Oval at the corner of Owen and Spenser Sts, Iluka.
They'll begin at 8am and run till 12.30pm.
