UPDATE: KIAMA Farmers' Markets have rescheduled their lantern event for the school holidays and hope the weather will behave.
They will now be held Wednesday, September 24. That week the markets will run from 2-6pm with music, kids' games and activities.
Kiama Council has supplied the management committee with 125 silk lanterns in a range of colours that were a gift from Kiama's sister city Hoi An in Vietnam.
“There will be a kids' spud hunt on the beach and the market will run an hour later, until 6pm, so people can shop later and have dinner at the harbour,'' markets co-ordinator Tricia Ashelford said. "There will also be music and floating lanterns on the water, weather permitting.”
“Hanoi on Manning will have a Vietnamese food stall for this market as we are celebrating the friendship agreement between Kiama and Hoi An in Vietnam.
“It should be a great market and we'll be very happy to farewell winter and welcome spring.''
