As Coolum Beach fast approaches the holiday season, so too does the unique opportunity to share in an annual tradition that is a favorite of locals and tourists alike. Nestled in Tickle Park, the Coolum Lioness Club sponsored Twilight Markets offers visitors far more than a traditional shopping experience. This unique holiday tradition is part shopping excursion and part carnival with more than eighty stalls stuffed filled with amazing arts and crafts offering. From designer sunglasses to ornately wrought woodwork to delicious homemade snacks, Coolum Twilight Market is the local destination spot for fun.
Where Shopping is Like a Carnival…
While contemplating which stall to patronize next to complete your holiday shopping, you can pass the time enjoying a soothing massage or getting decorated for the holidays with a Henna tattoo. Indeed, with great food and shopping options that can’t be found anywhere else in Queensland, Australia, and Twilight Market is your entire family’s portal to holiday revelry.
Beyond the nearby proximity of the beach and bucolic park-like setting, there are plenty of things for kids to do from blowing bubbles to enjoying homemade fudge while enjoying the gentle ocean breezes. When it comes to dependents however, Twilight Market does not discriminate, and they invite you to bring along your furry household members as well.
They offer a pet care stall to meet the needs of your canine companions. While you’re completing the last minute Christmas shopping done, your four-legged friends will be safely cared for, and you can even get a holiday picture painted of your dog for the mantle.
Unique Shopping Items…
Beyond original artwork performed by local area artists, handmade clothing, kid’s costumes, and unique jewelry that’s crafted from Cutlery and Scrabble pieces. You can nibble on locally grown strawberries as you stroll the many aisles and offerings of Coolum’s Twilight Markets. If your only shopping experience has been limited to traditional big-box stores and main stream malls, then you will love this completely unique shopping experience.
Start a new holiday family tradition at the Twilight Markets where fun is the order of the day. Beginning November 29, 2013, and held every Friday night running through the end of January 2014, this year’s local street market is the perfect year to start new traditions. Enter raffles that will earn funds to back into the community, and have earned the Coolum Lioness Club’s much deserved reputation for civic mindedness.
