Summer markets and movies at Lake Pertobe

News Article Date:

One of Warrnambool’s great modern summer traditions, the popular summer night markets and movies is returning to Lake Pertobe for summer 2016-2017.

The markets see a vast array of stalls, delectable food and live music combine to make a great evening out. 

Markets will be held on December 30, then every Friday in January from 4.30-8.30pm. 

“If you’ve been to the markets before, you probably don’t need much convincing to return this year,” Warrnambool City Council Manager Events Kim Griffith said. 

“If you’ve never been, I’d encourage you to come down and browse the dozens of market stalls, grab a bite to eat and find a spot on the grass to enjoy some great live music. 

“With the markets running for five Fridays, that’s plenty of opportunity to soak up the atmosphere at one of the city’s most enjoyable recurring events.” 

Once the sun dips below the horizon, it’s time to settle in and enjoy a film under the stars. 

The outdoor cinema will be in operation on January 6 and 13, with films commencing at dusk (about 8.30-9pm). 

The first film is The Jungle Book (PG). 

The latest incarnation of Rudyard Kipling’s classic tale contains elements of action, adventure, nature, and romance. 

The next film is the instant Australian classic, The Dressmaker (M). 

A stylish drama with comic undertones about love and revenge. 

Tickets to the outdoor cinema are $2 with all proceeds going to the Rotary Club of Warrnambool Daybreak. 

If you are driving to the markets, parking at Cannon Hill or Flagstaff Hill is recommended.
