The inaugural Wondai Twilight markets held at the showgrounds on Saturday has been hailed as a great success.

Show Society secretary Sue Hullock said the response by the public had been “brilliant”, with the crowd building as the afternoon wore on.

There were more than 30 stalls strung along a line behind the main pavilion.

The Show Society put on a jumping castle for the children and for the adults there was a bonus that most other local markets can’t offer … a licensed bar.

Sue said the markets had been the brainchild of Bree Retschlag after the Show Society was forced to cancel its 2020 and 2021 shows due to the pandemic.

She said Bree had done an incredible amount of work in the lead-up to make the inaugural event a success.

The Show Society now plans to run the markets four times a year, with one coinciding with the annual Wondai Show.
