Forbes will be the place to be tomorrow with the annual Find it in Forbes Christmas Festival invading the CBD for a morning of festivities. It is an event not to be missed on the local calendar as there will be plenty on offer for the whole family. A super loaded morning has been planned with the popular Forbes Farmers Markets joining forces with the Forbes Business Chamber to bring a huge selection of market stalls to the CBD. There will also be live
entertainment featuring some excellent local singing talent.
Business Chamber President, Chris Roylance, said: “The morning will be an opportunity for the community to join local businesses in a showcase of what we have to offer. Everyone from across the region should get to Forbes and explore the wonderful shopping experience we have to offer. Not only will it be about the shopping, but about a morning of music and kids entertainment, including a special visit from Santa.”
In partnership with Vanfest, the Business Chamber is anticipating one of its biggest weekends on the tourism calendar with thousands of people from across the country set to flock to Forbes for the annual music festival. Chris Roylance said: “We want to make sure there are plenty for locals and visitors to do and really show why Forbes is the best place in the country to visit. Following on from the recent flood events in September and October, this is an opportunity for the community to rebuild and show our city counterparts the spirit that is alive and well in Forbes.”
There will also be chance to win prizes with over $1,500 worth of Why Leave Town dollars given away on the morning to lucky winners who have been shopping locally in the Find it in Forbes promotion, which kicked off at the end of October. Everyone making purchases in participating stores tomorrow will receive entries to win their
share in the major prize pool of $15,000 which will be drawn on 22nd December.
With a nine o’clock start tomorrow, and extended trading throughout Forbes in the lead up to Christmas, there will be lots on offer for people travelling to town, as well as local shoppers starting their Christmas shopping.
