Families flock to popular beach markets

IT was a perfect afternoon for the Beach, Arts, Music markets on Saturday at Tannum Sands' Millennium Esplanade, yet again proving it is one of the most popular and family friendly events in the Gladstone region.

Kathy Holmes had nothing but praise for the free event, sitting on a beach chair eating potato sticks with her sons Kynan and Liam.

"We just love the relaxed nature. It's such a great afternoon for families," she said.

Two-year-old Alexis McPherson was having a ball with her mum and dad.

"She saw the wooden bike and she pointed and said 'bike'," her dad Tim said.

Store holder Julita Kiernan is an old hand at BAM, selling knick-knacks, sweets and hand-crafted items since 2012.

"I love knitting. I do it when I am watching TV," she said.

"I've lived in Gladstone for 54 years."

The last BAM for 2014 will be in held on the first Saturday in December.
