Markets sheer music to crowd’s ears
The streets of Karratha were opened to a crowd of several hundred people who turned out to enjoy the first Karratha City Markets of the year.
The markets, on Saturday, March 24, were held in conjunction with the Pilbara Community Legal service’s Harmony Day Celebrations.
A charity-run barbecue, pony rides, market stalls, fresh produce, live music and a diverse array of performances took place on the lawn area surrounding The Quarter.
During the evening there was a series of cultural dances and performances, including Filipino, Venezuelan, Thai and Maori dances, a bagpipes performance, and singing by a woman from Thursday Island in the Torres Strait.
The markets are held monthly until December, on Saturdays between 5pm and 9pm.
