SUNDAY NOVEMBER 5 2017 SOCIAL SCENE FRONTIER 23 V1 - NTNE01Z01MA Snapped Its the wet season, but theres still plenty of events in the Territory. Check out whos been out and about this week NATIONAL CHILDRENS WEEK Darwin Waterfront MUMS, dads and plenty of little tackers came out in flocks to celebrate festivities for a National Childrens Week event in Darwin last Saturday. A free family fun day took place, featuring childrens activities like archery attack, a water slide to cool off, the popular float and play blow-ups in the Recreation Lagoon, face painting, balloons, music, arts and craft activities and plenty more. Express Studios Darwin also got the kids whooping with a breakdancing and hip hop workshop, and a movie was screened in the evening.

The Wet season is officially here, heralded by the last instalment of the ever-popular Mindil Markets for 2017. There was still much fun to be had on Thursday, October 25, when plenty of punters poured to the beachside stalls to get some tasty tucker, listen to some tunes, or maybe buy an early Christmas present or two. Sadly for the markets, general manager Di Henry said they hadnt been as busy in 2017 as previous years, reflecting a downturn in retail across the region however she was optimistic foot traffic would pick up in 2018.
