Trash and Treasure Market will support 2017 Ararat Candles by Candlelight

ARARAT’S Trash and Treasure Market will this weekend provide financial support for the annual Carols By Candlelight event.

The Trash and Treasure Market will run from 8am to 1pm on Sunday at Alexandra Hall in Ararat.

The trash and treasure market will have the usual craft, edible goodies, plants and books.

Carols by Candlelight co-ordinator Joe Perry said money from  Sunday’s market would go towards running the annual Carols by Candelight event in Alexandra Gardens on December 9.

“I think it’ will be the 24th time we have run the Carols by Candlelight,” he said.

“They’ll also be fairy floss and balloons for the children and hopefully a visit from the jolly fat man himself, Santa Clause.

 It’s Ararat putting on show for Ararat.”

Run by the Y's Men's and Y's Menettes Clubs, Ararat’s Carols by Candelight events regularly attract hundreds of people.

The clubs celebrated 20 years of carols in 2014, when the Carols by Candlelight were moved to a Saturday to enable families the peace of mind of a 'sleep in' on Sunday.
