Mount Isa Community Markets bring hundreds out for Christmas shopping

Mount Isa Community Markets held a special twilight market at the Skate Park for Christmas on Saturday December 16, with gifts galore and an outdoor food court serving great local offerings.

Strewn across the lawn to the left of the park was a rich assortment of garden critters brought all the way from Townsville by J&A Concrete Creations. A West Highland Terrier and a green frog went home with this journalist, for a song.

Crowds were entertained by Mount Isa School of Dance reindeer and Christmas elves, who performed a couple of numbers on the park stage.

Home-made crafts of all kinds were showcased and sold, as well as plants, clothes, furniture, and plenty of food. 

Well done to all the local stall holders who participated, and congratulations to the Mount Isa Community Markets committee for such a successful event, and indeed year.
