Turn back the clock at the Lamplight Bazaar at Portside, Maryborough on Saturday 24 March with quirky torchlight tours, international foods, handmade craft, horse and carriage rides, free children's fire twirling workshops, music and live art demonstrations, working displays and a host of weird and wonderful costumed characters.
See the exhibits come alive on a “Night at the Museum” tour of the Maryborough Military Museum; take an eerie torchlight visit underneath the old Bond Store museum to see a sound and light show as part of the Night Watchman’s tour or join a costumed guide for a fascinating insight into the bottled history of Maryborough's hotels.
The Lamplight Bazaar starts at 5pm and is being staged by the Fraser Coast Regional Council.
A wet weather program centred around Gatakers Artspace is in place in case of heavy rain. Live art and fire twirling demonstrations and workshops will be held in Gatakers Artspace, along with musical entertainment and food and coffee. The Night at the Museum Tour will still be held, while other tour guides will be on hand to conduct tours of the Portside.
The fun continues the next morning at Sunday in the Park in Queens Park.
As well as steam train rides and brass bands, there will be traditional children’s games and the firing of the time cannon.
Mary Heritage will conduct free guided ‘Sunday Strolls’ through the park sharing details of its many exceptional features as one of Australia’s earliest botanic gardens.
Tours will depart from the White Picket Fence entry to the park at 9am and 10am.
