The Winter Night Market at Queen Victoria Market, Melbourne, Australia

During my trip to Melbourne in mid August, 2018, I had lots of fun photographing and partaking in the Winter Night Market (opens every Wednesday night) within the grounds of the Queen Victoria Market.  It was very festive, alive with smells, sounds, and tastes.  I highly recommend that you go if you find yourself in Melbourne during an Australian winter.

A very large number of people showed up with wireless headphones on, singing and dancing to the music.  This was my first time to witness a Silent Disco!  It looked like so much fun, I wanted my own headphones :-)   Those without the headphones hear no music, giving the effect of a room full of people dancing to nothing.
