I recently reviewed the Saturday markets in the lovely beachside town of Kingscliff in Northern NSW - Click here for my review. Now, on the first Friday of every month, don't miss the new Knightfest Lantern Markets running from 5.30pm until 9.30pm. The inaugural Lantern Market was held in January, so it's a brand new fixture for Kingscliff which I am sure will continue to evolve.

The Lantern Markets promise music, entertainment and food in addition to the market stalls. The January Market featured musician Juzzy Smith and a fashion parade by local fashion business On Kliff. In the February event, the Main stage will feature local musician, vocalist and song writer Lissy Stanton and her Band. The selection of food stalls was limited at the first market by council restrictions, but it looks set to have some more options at the next event. There will also be plenty of activities for children with Dan The Balloon Man booked for the February Markets.
The Lantern Markets are located in the Lions Club next to the Surf Club on Marine Parade. The beach is stunning and it would make a great start to the weekend to visit the Markets after a walk on the beach.
