It’s coming up to that time of year again!

Macedon Fire Brigade Annual Fleamarket
Saturday, 28th February 2015

Amusements, Food and Stalls commence at 9.30 am
Auction commences at 11.00 am

 

 

The Annual Fleamarket for the Macedon Rural Fire Brigade was initiated in 1968 after the Ladies Auxiliary made the suggestion and the first Fleamarket was held at the local service station. The market consisted of bric-a-brac and clothes stalls and an auction for the larger items such as furniture, white goods, etc, all donated by the local community.

 

The Fleamarket has been successfully conducted every year since 1968, with the exception of 1983 and 1984, due to the Ash Wednesday bushfires that swept through Macedon on February 16, 1983. Unfortunately the fire station was burnt to the ground, including all of the donated goods that had been collected, as the brigade was preparing to hold the event at the end of that month.

 

In 2009, due to the aftermath of the Black Saturday fires, the unusually hot weather and extreme Fire Danger the Flea Market had to be postponed from its usual Friday night in February and took place on a Saturday in March. The change was very successful and we have decided to continue with a daytime, Saturday event, to enable families and friends to come along and enjoy the whole day.

 

The brigade is busily preparing for this year’s Fleamarket and we will have the usual Auction, Bric-a-Brac, Books,  Kids Toys, bikes, small electrical goods, big boys toys ( Lawn Mowers, Tools, etc ), plants and of course the food kitchen. Food and Drinks will be available all day, from 10.00 am and Amusements, including games alley, jumping castles, Face-Painting and and coloured hair spraying will all be there.  There will also be a HUGE Raffle happening around the same time, so tickets will be available on the day..!!
