Byron night market to end season with Bentley fundraiser
BYRON Bay's last night-time artisan market will close on a high this Saturday with the annual Harmony Day festivities.
The market, which runs from October to April, will host a range of cultural performances and foods alongside craft stalls and will also act as a fundraiser for the blockade against gas mining at Bentley.
Bollywood dancer Zerina Miller will be among those performing at Harmony Day, sharing her Indian heritage.
"My mother is from southern India and in my household we always danced," she said.
"My sister and I studied classical Indian dance as children, but it was only later that we set up the Bollywood Sisters dance school in Byron Shire.
"Bollywood dancing is fun and it's all about connecting with others. Anyone can do it - we have students with a range of different abilities.
"We want to share our culture and the joy dance brings."
The Harmony Day Artisan Market will be held tomorrow in Railway Park, Byron Bay, from noon-9pm.
The Byron Beachside Market will be held on Easter Saturday from 8am-4pm.
Byron Community Centre will be collecting donations during the next two weeks for the Bentley blockade. Donations may be made at the Byron Community Centre during office hours 10-4pm.
