Every Thursday in Maryborough is Market day. Generally I head in early, before Stuart goes to work, to buy fresh local fruit and vegetables at a much better price than Woolworths charges. Today however, our whole family headed in at 7am for a slightly different reason..... to promote Wizard of Oz! Stu, Alex (Dorothy), Gavin (Scarecrow) and Amy (Glinda, no costume though) walked the streets handing out brochures, with the kids and I in tow. :) They were very in character and it was quite hilarious watching them with the crowd- good old street theatre!
Here are some pics of our morning........
Yay! Free popcorn! Good thing cos we didn't have time for breakfast :)
The stall holders were great and seemed to enjoy the show :)
Gavin's great idea! A shame Tinman wasn't available this morning...
Free lolly tastings!
We got a little tired of walking.... the children loved sitting and looking at these statues for awhile
We found Mary Heritage (an icon here) doing the "welcome to Maryborough" announcements for the morning, and got her to read aloud the brochure through the sound system! Good advertising. Aren't we a theatrical bunch in this town?!
Stuart just commented that he wants to go next Thursday and do it all again. I'm not sure about that, but it was a fun way to start the day!!
