So much fun was had at the first Feel Good Friday at Newenham. After a chilly evening was forecast, Mount Barker’s weather turned itself on for the very first Feel Good Friday, hosted in conjunction with the Adelaide Hills Farmers Market.
It was a beautiful, sunny evening as couples, families and friends started arriving from 5pm to relax and unwind after their busy week.
With feel good live music, a casual atmosphere and buzzing market stalls, over 500 people relaxed and enjoyed the golden hour of summer sunshine. A few even took the opportunity to kick off their shoes and boogie to the fabulous tunes from Mollydooker, the Adelaide Hills Ukelele Group & Choir and The Fiddle Chicks!
A range of local food stalls provided a variety of tasty choices – for the kids and the adults alike – and all were accompanied by locally produced beer, wine, cider and homemade lemonade and ginger beer.
Together, over 20 market stalls filled the Newenham event space with a wide range of artisan goodies for sale. It was the perfect shopping expedition for those eager to cross a few names off their Christmas list – and find a few treats for themselves.
The kids were entertained with fun crafts and musical activities and fabulous face painting as well as the enjoying the natural environment of Newenham where they were free to roam and explore and make new friends.
We’re delighted so many wonderful traders will be returning for the next Feel Good Friday events, along with a few new and interesting stalls too.
As the sun started to set, everyone took the opportunity to relax in this beautiful environment and enjoy the company of great family and friends. What a perfect way to kick off of the festive season!
