This past weekend was the last weekend of the 2012 Vancouver Chinatown Night Market and we would like to thank everyone that came and supported us over these past couple of months!
Here are some pictures from this past weekend!

What another beautiful weekend! Not only was there the Chinatown Night Market, on August 11th and 12th, we also had Chinatown Festival during the day!
A beautiful day!
The crowds were also out in full force; sampling all the different foods and bargaining for deals.

Many of our vendors have also gotten new products, like this bread card holder – it smells like bread too!

Can’t forget about the food!
Reminder that you can still enter in August’s monthly draw, just come to the night market 3 times for the rest of this month and remember to collect 3 stamps!
Warm and sunny evenings; cold drink in hand; yummy food in the other; cute and cool gadgets and accessories; hearing Backstreet Boys being sung on stage all equals an awesome evening no? Just take a look at the pictures:
Wheel cakes filled with nutella (custard, peanut butter or red bean) are a must for nutella lovers (who isn’t?). And looking for a cute gift? Look at this ridiculously adorable wallet. Yes, it’s a wallet that looks like an envelope with a Hello Kitty stamp. Seriously.

Because eating dessert first is what all the rebels do, maybe you can have a rice ball as your main course followed by the entertainment on the main stage. And then more shopping of course.

And reminder! August 4th at 8:30 pm is the draw date for the July winner of the monthly draw!
Despite the not-so-great weather on Friday (I’m sure many of you have forgotten, so I will describe it in one word: Rain), many of our vendors still came out! And we were rewarded with fantastical weather on Saturday and pretty decent weather on Sunday. Did anyone challenge the representatives from the Vancouver Chinese Chess Association?

Since we were greeted with much better weather over Saturday and Sunday, tourists and locals flocked to do some shopping and eating! Speaking of shopping, if you tend to lose your sunglasses a lot and don’t want to spend too much money on buying them, check out one of our vendors at the night market! Tons of sunglasses to choose from and at a reasonable price too!
