Middle Districts Lions Club is the organiser of the annual Lions Market Day (Old English Faire) in the Square, held in the last Saturday of October.
The Market Day has been held since 1956. Last year we had to cancel the Market Day due to Covid. Market Day is held in The Square, which is the heart of the Palmerston North shopping area.
The Plaza corner of The Square is filled with approximately 60+ craft stalls, include: Collectibles, Arts & Crafts, Quality Wares, Clothing, Jewellery & Trinkets, Hot Food and Drinks.
Entertainment is provided throughout the day with the Manawatu Scottish Pipe Band and a selection of local School Music Groups.
Snapback also specialises in working with youth groups to channel their energy in a fun and engaging manner to be leaders, good role models and positive contributors to society.
