Every year, I find shopping for Christmas presents one of the hardest things about the silly season. Thankfully there are so many Christmas markets which I can do my shopping at and enjoy the festive atmosphere. So here is a list of five Christmas markets right here in Gippsland - enjoy!
Boo Events is holding an evening of Christmas carols, live music, market stalls, food trucks and entertainment for the whole family! There will be face painting, jumping castle, lawn games, petting zoo and much much more! It's a chance to get your Christmas shopping done while supporting small, local businesses as well as catching up with friends and family.
