For those with the chrimbo bug I’ve had a media release in which is likely to intrigue:
Immerse yourself in everything festive from 9-17 December 2011 at the Capital’s first ever Christmas Markets, to be held at Exhibition Park in Canberra.
For the first time, Canberrans will be able to celebrate Christmas in the spirit of Europe’s famous “Weihnachtsmarkt”. For centuries, these outdoor markets have captured the spirit of Christmas; selling gifts, seasonal necessities and food in a uniquely festive setting. Now, it’s Canberra’s turn to enjoy this amazing experience!
Visitors can stock up on their every need at the markets, with an incredible array of food and handicraft stalls onsite. A relaxed Christmas atmosphere will make finding that unique gift a pleasurable experience for the whole family.
UPDATE: We’ve had this from the organisers:
Further to the media release sent last week, please be advised that the dates for the Canberra Christmas Markets have changed to:
Friday 9 to Sunday 11 December – open from 12 noon to 9pm each day.
