September – Chinatown Markets returned to line the streets of Southport with delicious, authentic Asian foods and groovy sounds this month with over 2,000 people flocking to the monthly Markets for a taste of Asia.
These days solely hosted in Davenport Street and Davison Lane, the food was hosted in the main street with the laneway featuring seating and entertainment. Three funky artists filled the streets with music and encouraged dancing among the youngsters, while a skills saxophone player played some classic hits for the older crowd. Kids activities included motorised animal rides as well as free arts & crafts and face painting. The Chalk Art also proved a hit with the young ones as they graced the streets with beautiful drawings and illustrations.
If you are yet to attend a Chinatown Market, do yourself a favour and get down to the next one. Delicious food, great entertainment and things to do for the kids – it’s a market not to be missed!
