Bazaar Market a huge success

The first market was finally held on the 2nd of May 2009 at the Woolgoolga Beach Reserve.  Visitors enjoyed a variety of hot food, art and craft stalls and fantastic free entertainment. The music was mesmerising and families sat around near the chill-out tent which was beautifully decorated in the centre of the market.

A lady from Ballina commented, "We only stopped here to use the public amenities. I didn't know Woolgoolga has such a colourful and entertaining market here. Next time, we will especially come for the market." 

The Advocate reported

THE colour, spectacle and music of India proved to be a hit at the first Bollywood Beach Bazaar in Woolgoolga.

International Sikh singing act, Sant Singh Paras, led the entertainment line-up with the local Bollywood dancers and African drumming on Saturday.

The singing group sang traditional ballads accompanied by the saringi, a traditional Indian instrument.

The mix of world-music entertainment, market stalls, international food and beautiful weather was a hit that organisers are keen to repeat for the next market day on May 23.

Marketgoers came from across the region and made a whole day of the event.

Bazaar licensee, Mrs Surinder Kaur, was thrilled with the turn-up.

“It was jam-packed, there was no room and I was so excited,” Mrs Kaur said.

At the next market day, the entertainment line-up will include the Japanese Taiko drummers, African drums, belly dancing and the Bollywood dancers.
