This weekend Council will be hosting great family entertainment and events with the Twilight Markets and Towers Rush IV.
Starting at 6pm, Saturday 3 November, the Showgrounds will be alive with the Twilight Markets, Cultural Food and Film Festival.
On offer will be market stalls of crafts, clothing and jewellery. Enjoy some great food including waffles, ribs, crepes, doughnuts, fish & chips, burgers, chicken and ice-cream.
Enjoy live pop rock and country music by Karizma, the duo group made up of Charters Towers locals Tammy Wilson and Christie Polinelli.
To round out the night, relax and watch some local students’ short films premiering at the Queensland Touring Film Festival.
Students have been busying filming and editing their own films which will premiere with a collection of great short films from around the world that have yet to screen in Queensland.
On Sunday morning at 8:30am, teams of between two and five people will gather to participate in Towers Rush IV. Starting at the Showgrounds, teams will navigate the far reaches of Charters Towers while completing a variety of challenges.
Towers Rush is four big hours of fun and exciting amazing race style events that will turn Charters Towers into one big active playground. It’s suitable for everyone from the young, to the young at heart, intellectuals and the keen athlete.
Activities and challenges will include abseiling, mini ninja warrior course, whacking a ball, finding hidden clues, “minute to win it” style games and many more.
To ensure walking teams don't miss out on all the awesome challenges, this year will see the return of the ‘Rush Bus’! Driving a pre-organised loop throughout the event, it will link challenge locations at Millchester and the Weir.
During the points interval of Towers Rush, there will be a live music by Ron & Debbie Sellars and a waterslide to cool off. Be sure to bring a towel and a change of clothes.
