And that was Twilight Market 2019!

What an absolutely magical day! 

Despite the rain threatening to spoil our fun our enthusiastic community just embraced the weather and partied on. Kids reported that “the rain just made it better” and in some ways we’d have to agree since some of our favourite moments of the market happened as a result of the rain coming, such as:

The Devil Goat String Band launching into an acoustic set in the agora, creating some wonderful intimate festive vibes under the cover of the trees;

Somehow throwing soggy poos into the loo made the game even more appealing than usual- the game continuing long into the evening;

Parents laughing at soaked kids trying to wiggle their way down a wet slide because they kept sticking to it;

And kids piling into the hall to bust out some dance moves on the hall stage to their favourite tunes on the Beps Jukebox.

Congratulations to Team Twilight 2019. You’ve all put in so much time and effort to make this event such a success. Some very long hours were put in this week and so many also in the lead up months. It’s been a mammoth effort. I know us coordinators were on our feet for somewhere around 14 hours yesterday but it was 100% worth it. Look what we created together! It’s been loads of fun working with you all. What a super team!

Thank you to everyone who contributed- coordinators and stall leaders, teams, volunteers, makers, donors and those who came and played and partied with us until dark. So much good food, drinks, treats, treasures and fun.

Thank you to Janet and Jill who were first in and last to leave – we appreciate all your wonderful support. And of course Marianne and the fabulous school office staff and teachers who contributed in many different and important ways.

Lastly a special mention to Fiona Tame, our Twilight Market Comms superstar. Not only did you manage to stay on top of all of the various communications but you also managed to coordinate Kids Cafe and still assist us with countless odd jobs over the past few months. Legend.

Here are some snaps from the night, and stay tuned for our official photos to be uploaded soon!

Over and out,
