‘Goosebumps’: Paxton’s Night Markets making a comeback

IT HAS been a long seven months but this weekend, Paxton’s Night Markets is making a comeback.

Event organiser Petrina Collins said they had a line-up of vendors and food stalls at the ready as well as musicians Chrissy and Lucid Wings.

“I’m incredibly excited to be bringing back a much-loved local market,” Ms Collins said.

“I’m getting goosebumps.

“We support quality, locally handmade products and we don’t have multiple stores selling the same things so our vendors have got a really good chance of getting their products out to the community leading up to Christmas.”

Ms Collins said the markets, held inside the Paxtons Warehouse on River St, would be COVID-19 compliant.
