"Park and Ride" : take the Sunset Fair Shuttle bus from Lecidere, near Lita Store!

Monday, 22 August 2011

August 26th Opening night: Music, dancing, a movie show, food and drink, handicraft stalls, bouncy castle and special guest entertainers from Darwin!

Friday, August 26th marks the grand opening of the Sunset Fair season for 2011 and we are certainly starting with a great, big night!  Music, dancing, a movie show, food and drink, a huge range of handicrafts and local products on sale, our beloved bouncy castle from Venture Hotel and special guest entertainers from Darwin's Mindil Beach Markets. 

The programme has now been finalised:

IMPORTANT: Just for opening night, the car park at Kristu Rei will be restricted to stallholders and VIP's only. However, you will be able to take the shuttle minibus from beside the fish market (Bidau Sant'Ana) near Lita Store - all the way down to the Sunset Fair site. The return fare is just 20c. You might also be able to park in Metiaut or Areia Branca and pick up the bus from there, but we recommend that if possible you just PARK 'N' RIDE from Lecidere! There will be three minibuses running a continual loop on the route, starting  up around 3pm and all the way through the evening until at least 11 pm. We want to keep the traffic running smoothly, so thank you for your cooperation. 

At 8pm, Cinema Lorosa'e will premiere its first movie of the 2011 season with a wonderful family film called "Legend of the Guardians: Owls of Ga'Hoole". This animated movie is sure to thrill adults and children alike. See http://www.cinemalorosae.com/ for more details.

Thanks to Airnorth's continuing sponsorship of the Sunset Fair, we will be welcoming some guest entertainers from the Mindil Beach Sunset Markets as well as Mindil committee members who will be sharing their expertise in market management with the Sunset Fair stallholders. Last season, the Mindil entertainers were hugely popular with the children and we're looking foward to seeing more of their stilt-walking, fire-eating, bubble-blowing, hula-hooping shenanigans again this year... 

Stilt walking: apparently there's a knack to it
but it helps if you have the right equipment!
