What is on this weekend? The Handmade Expo Markets near you.
What's on this week? After a wild and crazy Cyclone Marcia visited Queensland last weekend, a lot of our Rockhampton friends are still without power and have a big clean up to do. Our thoughts are with them and hope that they haven't had too much damage and will be back on their feet soon. Our Bundaberg friends also struggled with Marcia's presence and were hit with wild winds and lots of rain with saw the postponement of their first Handmade Expo Market in the new Civic Centre. The Civic Centre then became an evacuation centre for the region. Further down the coast and in a bit, Ipswich was also on high alert with the forecast of strong winds and potential flooding and with the safety of customers and stall holders alike in mind, the Ipswich market was also postponed. This was the first time in the 6 and a bit years that The Handmade Expo Market has been running that a market has postponed due to weather, not bad for an outdoor event. So on to this weekend, this weekend... The Handmade Expo Market at Bundaberg, has a new venue and a new look. The fabulous Bundaberg Civic Centre is a wonderful indoor venue that is a perfect place to showcase all the Handmade talent Bundaberg has to offer. With the event being postponed last Sunday and moved to this Sunday, the stallholders are even more keen to show you their fabulous creations. This is also their first market for the year, so you don't want to miss this.
