It was a hugely popular attraction at Party in the Park, and now the Night Market is set to carry on the summer tradition into the fall.
The Christmas Night Market will be launched on Friday, Oct. 21 at the Chilliwack Mall at 5 p.m.
“We wanted to have it in a downtown location but unfortunately there was no space available,” said night market manager Mandy Watts.
About 25 to 30 merchants will kick off the market this week and then they’ll be moving into a larger location in the mall, where the Deals Only store used to be.
Clothing, jewelry, toys, equestrian tack, hand-crafted treasures and more will be on display.
Many of the vendors were eager to see the night market continue, after getting an “overwhelmingly positive” response from shoppers during the third season of Party in the Park, she said.
“This is a great group of talented people with beautiful products. The vendors are like family,” Watts said. “So they’re worth fighting for.”
Buskers will be on-hand to entertain and a few food vendors will be offering everything from beef stew, to cupcakes to schnitzel.
Vendors can call 604-701-2500 to reserve a space or email at firstname.lastname@example.org
The night market runs at the mall Oct. 21 to Dec. 16 from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.
