Outram School will be transformed into a twilight wonderland
on Friday with the return of the school's mardi gras.
Organising committee member Su Miller said the carnival was
the school's annual fundraising event, and was shaping up to
be bigger and better than ever.
As well as the usual candy apples, candy floss, lollies, ice
creams and sausage sizzles, the Outram mardi gras would live
up to its reputation for the range and quality of less
traditional fair food on offer, she said.
There would be a ''tantalising'' variety of curries,
delicious baked potatoes with stunning toppings, gourmet
burgers, gourmet ploughman's platters and decadent desserts.
''These can be enjoyed while listening to a fantastic line-up
of live music, including the very talented Melissa
Partridge,'' Ms Miller said.
Another feature of the event is Retro Alley with its
assortment of second-hand goods.
''There is a real chance of getting a bargain here.''
Entry to the mardi gras is by gold coin donation and the
gates open at 4.30pm.
