Maylands hawkers markets kicked off the season on Saturday 1 November with the theme of Day of the Dead and it certainly kicked off with a bang. It was a full house and when we arrived, we were greeted to a huge crowd of patrons, family, kids and dogs in tow, in the area outside the Maylands RISE.
Though it was quite crowded, it was a friendly atmosphere, with people enjoying their meal, chatting, talking, and checking out the food stalls. Kids were kept entertained playing amongst themselves, and running around on the grassed areas.
The markets had a lively atmosphere, and the usual suspects were there.
Looking for something to do around Perth and surrounds this November? You know there's never a reason to be bored in this great city of ours. There's something for everyone this November, whether you're into arts and culture, sports or books. Catch a few plays, go to a music concert.

Perth Walkabout presents a sneak peak of upcoming Perth events in November, 2014:
Gasp! By Ben Elton first debuted way back in 1990 in London under the stage name Gasping, and was set in corporate Britain. 25 years later, the team of Black Swan State Theatre Company, Queensland Theatre Company and Elton have dug it up from the depths, transplanted it to Australia's mining industry, given it a bit of a modern spit and polish and set it loose on unsuspecting theatregoers.
Did someone say Brazouk?
Yes - the much anticipated Brazouka has opened in Perth at the Regal Theatre in Subiaco.
The high energy dance performance tells the story of the main character Braz Dos Santos.
Braz grew up in Portos Seguro, Brazil, where his childhood is shared with many other siblings, and times are tough, as he spends much of his time out at sea to help his family put food on the table.
As the evening progresses, we are swept into Braz’s other exciting world, that of his passion for dance.
The Swan Festival of Lights is on again this year at Langley Park from the 22 to 26 October 2014 to celebrate Deepavali (Diwali) in Perth.
Wednesday 22 October 2014 - the day that the festival kicked off also happens to fall on the auspicious day of Deepavali – a special day when people from around the world celebrate the ancient Hindu festival of light triumphing darkness. Wishing all the local people who celebrate this festival in Perth a happy Deepavali.
As with previous years, attendees of the festival can look forward to scrumptious food put on by the Annalakshmi Cultural Centre of WA, along with a great line up of performers, consisting both local and international groups.
