Contribute to drought effort at markets

THE October 28 Showground Market is coming fast

There's been a significant response from the community to drought relief collections of food, toiletries and dog food for south east Queensland folk affected.

This will be the last market before the convoy heads west on October 31. Head along and add your contribution.

Also making a welcome return will be Erica's Gems - just one of the many crafty folk who bring their wares for sale - Christmas is soon upon us so it is not too early to think about gifts.

There will be fresh local produce, vintage and pre-loved goods, plants and the Ringmasters Café will be serving breakfast from 8am.

The Art Pavilion will be open - with artists at work, some pre-loved goods and books for sale and information about the 2019 Fine Arts competition - yes the show is right around the corner as well.

Charity of the day is Granite Belt Wildlife Carers - they are sure to have some great buys on sale.

Local musicians will be in on the act too - buskers, bands and entertainers are most welcome.

There is so much to see and do at the Showgrounds Markets.
