Georges River Council will hold two inaugural family-friendly Night Markets this month featuring live music, entertainment, market stalls and food vendors.

It is hoped the night markets will encourage people to stay in town centres after work or school and participate in a fun community event.

The first night market will take place in Kogarah on Friday, March 16 at Kogarah Town Square which will be transformed into an evening bazaar featuring food and market stalls, string lights and a vintage caravan as the entertainment stage.

Live entertainment will include Queen Porter Stomp, a mix of ukulele,vocals, banjo, horns and drums in the traditions of New Orleans music.

This will be followed by the Mango Balloon, a group which is described at a musical mix of tango and spaghetti western.

The evening’s entertainment will be rounded off with a traditional Hellenic dance performance.

On Friday, March 23, MacMahon Street, Hurstville will be closed-off to create the another Night Market venue.

Along with a selection of market stalls and food vendors, there will be free movie screenings, live music and entertainment.

The movie screenings will take place at the Civic Theatre, with Pete’s Dragon showing at 5pm, followed by Guardians of the Galaxy 2 at 7.30pm.

The vintage caravan stage will also return to the Night Market series, hosting a line-up of entertainers, including The Hot Potato Band, with more acts to be announced soon.

There will be a free colourful circus playground, where kids and adults can learn classic circus arts from skilled instructors, such as juggling, stilt walking and unicycle riding.

All Night Market events are smoke-free.
