Everyone loves a Friday night market. The working week is over, two days of fun awaits, and strolling, shopping, browsing and buying — not to mention eating and being entertained — sounds like the perfect activity. From November 3 until January 26, all of that is part and parcel of Old Petrie Town's festivities. Say hello to the historical site's Moonlight Markets.
Kicking off at 5.30pm each week, the details are simple: expect stalls, a lack of sunlight and the end of the 9-to-5 grind all combine. The free, dog-friendly event also has another trick up its sleeve, thanks to its location.
Part of Whiteside, about 40 minutes drive out of the city, Old Petrie Town comprises over 50 acres of pre-1930s-style life — including a restored village, manicured gardens and a throwback vibe. You know that feeling you get the moment quitting time comes each week, and you want to kiss your usual routine goodbye? Start your weekend with this, and you'll find it here.
