Richmond Night Market Opens Friday May18th 2012
The Richmond Night Market is now more then just food and shopping. This year’s market will feature carnival rides and a children’s amusement zone, and a pair of, Dragon Zip Lines, for those that want to soar above the crowds, adding thrills and chills to the nightly experience.
Raymond Cheung dubbed this year’s market the “Return of the Dragon”, auspiciously named as 2012 is the Year of the Dragon in the Chinese zodiac calendar. The Dragon restarts the Chinese zodiac cycle as the first and most powerful of its 12 symbols, and the 2012 market will mark a new beginning of sorts as Raymond Cheung promises to breathe fire and new life into a wholly-revamped market. With 250 booths offering cool merchandise, 80 vendors serving mouth-watering food and desserts—with a different specially-featured-and-priced vendor each night—a diversity of family-friendly entertainment, and more than a thousand nearby parking stalls, the 2012 market will deliver what no previous market ever has.
The new location is just 200 metres away from the Bridgeport Station of the Canada Line, making it by far the most accessible site in the market’s history.
