The temporary closure of Byng Street to traffic for the Friday 25 October ‘night markets, held as part of the Orange Wine Festival, has been welcomed.
The idea is one of many being floated as part of the Future City CBD upgrade.
The night market event attracted thousands of people to Robertson Park to sample Orange’s wine and food from 54 stalls.
To allow the markets to be set up on Friday, Byng Street was closed to traffic between Lords Place and Peisley Street from 11 on the Friday morning, through to 11 on Friday night.
Orange mayor Cr Reg Kidd was impressed by how the new larger space worked for the event.
