BY popular demand flowers are back in the hall for this year's Comboyne Village Fair.
The Village Fair (previously known as the 'Spring Fair') will fall on Sunday, September 16 so now is a good time to mark the date in your diary!
In keeping with Comboyne's War Memorial Hall's recent 'art deco' renovations, the hall will this year be transformed into a 'Garden Cafe' in the style of the much loved 1943 movie classic 'Casablanca', which starred Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman.
The aim is to transform the hall into a dynamic atmosphere reminiscent of 'Rick's Cafe' - Devonshire teas, sandwiches and cakes will be served by young waiters and waitresses against the backdrop of a Moroccan desert, with echoes of a Parisienne garden.
The Cafe's ambience will be augmented with wartime piano music from Rosanna Denman and 'impressionist- style' artworks by Jo Ernst.
Entry to this year's Village Fair has dropped to $5 per person or $10 for a family (under 18's free) - great value for a day's outing to the country where a myriad of market stalls and live music will line the streets.
Other attractions this year include 'The Red Plateau Landscaping Competition', '4B3 Art Exhibition', and 'Car Club Capers' in the showground.
Book your market stall via Margot Anderson on 0427 900 056. For enquiries or entries to the landscaping competition, please phone Barbara Ward on 6550-4069.
All proceeds from the fair will as usual go towards the community owned Comboyne War Memorial Hall with this year's identified priority being to paint the hall exterior. More information can be found at www.comboynevillagefair.comfa
