For the first time I attended this huge Christmas fair where 70,000 visitors were expected, and I was really impressed at the enormous amount of tents set up in the main closed off streets of Leederville.

There were 250 stalls selling from take-away food to arts and crafts, vintage and recycled goods, gourmet food, and stalls selling Christmas goodies.
There were 8 stages through the venue with different types of entertainment, chefs had cooking demonstrations, camel rides for kids, a funfair for kids too, artists painting walls....
|This Space Man made some weird sounds - space age music maybe?|
|Father Christmas on his bike rode around the fair|
|A Gym bus for the kids|

|We had a very tasty Spanish Paella|
|You could also cycle for your fresh fruit juice...|
Friends of ours had a stall selling Cork products from Portugal - "Corker" , with handbags, hats, iphone cases, wallets, etc., a unique product in Australia.
At 8pm, they had about 5 minutes of fireworks and then the streets Christmas lights were lit up. It was time to catch the train back home. (The Leederville train station was a 5 min walk away)

I had a lot of fun going to the Christmas fair, and hopefully next year I'll be able to go again.
In my next post I will post a few photos of some new murals I came across at the fair.
Almost two weeks to Christmas and I'm still so behind with my preparations... Hope your Christmas preparations are coming along well.
