Markets to rock back clock

WARM up this winter with hot dogs and hot rods as the Vibe markets rock back the clock to the golden era of the 1950s.

The Bribie Island Community Arts Centre Vibe markets are taking on a rock n’ roll theme at this weekend’s event to help residents warm up as we reach the end of winter.

Promotions co-ordinator Vanessa Ilott said the centre’s volunteer chef has even designed a menu that fits the events theme.

“There will be hot dogs, sundaes, spiders, sodas and all that type of thing,” she said.

“The Le Dance school will be putting on a performance but Damian the instructor will also be doing step by step instructions.

“So people will have a chance to get involved and learn a bit of rock n’ roll or swing dancing for themselves.”

Market-goers will also be treated to a classic car and hot rod parade between 8.30-8.45am.

Vehicles will put on a show as they drive past patrons and make their way to the back of the markets, where they will be parked and can be enjoyed throughout the rest of the day.

Residents can stroll through the usual market settings with several dance performances put on for entertainment and rock n’ roll or swing music played in the background before making their way to the deck to feast on some delicious food suited to the era.

Vanessa said the day is a great outing for residents, day-trippers or tourists.

“It will be a fantastic day out and the theme should brighten up everyone as we come to the end of winter,” she said.

Head along and check it for yourself this Sunday, August 27, 8.30am – 1.30pm.

The markets will be held at the Bribie Island Community Arts Centre

(191 Sunderland Dr, Banksia Beach).

It’s free entry.
