Full Moon Market 2019 – Friday 13th Sept

Full Moon Market

Friday 13th September

What an incredible community event! 

Special thanks to Sally Mayman for Photography on the night


The Barrenjoey High School Full Moon Market went off without a hitch.  Rides, market stalls, food stalls, music and happiness were in abundance.  Fear was in abundance too!  The Spooky Forest frightened some of Avalon’s finest. 

These type of events cannot be put on without an incredible amount of cooperation and help from so many

The P&C firstly thanks Ian Bowsher and his staff for aiding and abetting the P&C to get the event underway. 

The music lineup, Flight Attendance, Josh Armitstead & Friends, Fifi Archibald and Momo Staines, Iona Thomson and Maren McHugh, Milly Wray, Polly Phelps and the Rions all provided incredible music.  Special thanks goes to Carla van der Wallen for her organisation on the night.  Big thanks to Felix Williamson also for MC ing the night.

The SRC outdid themselves with a Sno Cone stall as well as helping on the night.  Thanks to Lani Blackman for her leadership of the SRC.

The fireworks were as impressive as ever!  All Occasions Pyrotechnics again wowed us with a beautiful night sky as did the incredible full moon.
