Residents of Aura are excited for the launch of the Baringa Twilight Markets to be held at the newly opened Stockland Baringa Town Centre on Friday 11 October from 4pm.
A collaboration between Stockland and Caloundra Chamber of Commerce, the Baringa Twilight Markets will feature more than 20 unique food vendors, a number of artisan stalls, children’s entertainment, live musicians and a bar stocking local craft beers and wine.
Josh Sondergeld, Stockland Project Director – Aura, said: “We are extremely proud that the Caloundra Chamber of Commerce has chosen to run the Twilight Markets at the Stockland Baringa Town Square, which has been specifically designed for this purpose.
“With so many families already calling Baringa home, we are already seeing the Baringa Town Square establish itself as the heart of where neighbourhood families come together to make lifelong memories.”
Running on the second Friday of every month, this family orientated market is set to become a vibrant spot for local residents to kick off the weekend. Space has also been allocated within the market for local residents and businesses interested in promoting and selling their products.
In celebration of the commencement of the Baringa Twilight Markets, Stockland will be hosting a ‘Movies in the Park’ event, screening the family friendly movie Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle starting at 6.30pm. Residents are invited to stock up on treats from the markets and bring along a beanbag, rug or deck chair for the free screening under the stars.
Caloundra Chamber of Commerce President, Michael Shadforth, said: “The Baringa Twilight Markets will soon become a family favourite for the huge amount of young families in the area looking for affordable, local entertainment where they can socialise and enjoy themselves without leaving the neighbourhood.”
In keeping with Aura’s approach to sustainability, event organisers have incorporated a ban on plastic straws, will be utilising biodegradable cups and are asking locals to choose to walk, ride or skate.
