CANBERRA'S SUNDAY BEST
OPEN EVERY SUNDAY FROM 10AM - 4PM

We’re ‘luring’ more visitors to the markets this Sunday

13 July, 2016

PokemonGO at the Old Bus Depot MarketsPokémon Go is extremely popular all over the world right now. So we thought we’d have a bit of fun with it and have a Pokémon Go Lure Party to attract more of the pocket monsters to the markets this weekend.

If you haven’t discovered it yet, Pokémon Go is a fun game and a great way to get kids out walking and keep them active, while enjoying being in the outdoors and seeing some of Canberra’s best attractions – like the Old Bus Depot Markets!

This Sunday 17 July we’ll employ lure modules, special modifiers to a ‘Pokestop’, to attract many and rare Pokémon to the markets’ precinct.  The lure modules will be activated every half an hour between 10am and 4pm, and given that they last about half an hour per boost, there’s sure to be heavy Pokémon activity for the entire day.

As a bit of extra fun, share your photos of any Pokémon you catch via social media (Instagram, Facebook and Twitter) with the hashtag, #PokemonGOBDM, for the chance to win prizes.  For more information on our #PokemonGOBDM competition and how you can win prizes visit our Facebook page.
