FOOD, WINE + NIGHT MARKETS
Photography is welcome but please consider others when setting up tripods – please only set up where they won’t impede the view of others
For safety reasons, the venue does not allow pets. In addition to this, pets generally find the sound of the balloon burners, as well as fireworks, quite distressing so best to keep your pets at home.
There will be no ATM facilities at this event. Some stall holders will be able to offer EFTPOS for sales but to avoid disappoint, we suggest you have some cash on hand for purchases.
