Market in the park....

Glen Eira Council ran a Party in the Park today in Allnut Park, Mckinnon. One feature was an art and craft market. I decided to give it a go.

Luckily the weather held out and although there was a cold breeze, it didn't rain, and the sun even made an appearance.

 The event ran from 12-4pm. There were about 15 craft stalls selling products including handmade childrens hats, bags, purses, smocks, bookmarks, ceramics and greeting cards. There were also lots of activities for kids - the popular ones were cupcake decorating (and eating) & lantern/mask/badge making, as well as an entertainment stage.

 As far as the market went, I probably wouldn't do it again. Lots of people looked but most were really there for the activities, not for buying. I think a separate market event, minus activities and other distractions, would have been a better option for stallholders.
