Craft Market Weekend at SOLAS: A Summer of Festivities
SOLAS Eco Garden Centre is gearing up for an action-packed two weeks, starting with the exciting double market weekend. With a “Red, White & Blue” theme in honour of the upcoming 4th of July, SOLAS is set to celebrate with a vibrant menu and a festive atmosphere. However, the real highlight lies in the eagerly awaited “French Festival” that will take place shortly after. This French-inspired extravaganza promises a weekend filled with live Jazz performances, captivating puppet shows, the exhilarating “Tour de Port” cycle race, face painting, street entertainers, and a delectable array of French cuisine.
The recently introduced sandpit and basketball hoop in the SOLAS astroturf play area have quickly become favourites among children and parents alike, providing endless hours of entertainment.
