Expect the unexpected at Laggan Markets
The Laggan Markets presents a happy mix of traditional country market wares such as delectable produce with some wonderful local arts and crafts. Every market day is different, but expect the unexpected.
There is always that delicious sense of anticipation: will those artistic geniuses with their rusty wire crafted into exquisitely elegant masterpieces be there again? Will the tea pots fashioned into quirky garden art be on offer? Will Deb and Dave bring their lovingly baked gluten-free and awesomely delicious breads? (Better be quick because they always sell out fast!).
And what treasures might you find among the second-hand tools and knick-knacks? And how about all those irresistibly delectable local olives, oil, honey, jams, jellies, pickles and home-made cakes? It's all happening in Laggan on Saturday, August 17!

Gunning set to fire up
Its fast coming up to time for the fantastic Gunning Fireworks Festival.
If you've been before you'll need no encouragement to go again and if you haven't, be sure to go this time.
Gates open at 3pm and the event kicks off in true festival fashion with amusement rides, fairy floss, face painting, live music, food stalls and all sorts of market stalls selling lots of great gear.
The highlight of course is the legendary fireworks display. As the sun sets over the usually peaceful town of Gunning, those amazing pyrotechnic wizards from Fireworks Australia start lighting up the night skies with ever more dazzling displays of incandescent colours and dramatic explosions.
The grand Monster Fireworks Finale ends the night at around 8pm with one of the best fireworks displays you'll ever see!
- Gunning Fireworks Festival is held at the Gunning Showground. Tickets available on the gate, adults $10, under 16 $5, family $25. For more information: www.gunningfireworksfestival.com.au or phone: (02) 4845 1051.
