Night market coming soon

The third annual night market will be taking place next week.

The third annual Night Market is coming to Fort St. James on Tuesday, Aug. 18 from 5:00­ – 9:00 pm.

Spirit Square will be bursting with more than two dozen vendors. They’ll be selling  crafts and artwork, and there will also be plenty of delicious food available, so there’s no need to have dinner before heading down to the market.

Be prepared to be entertained by musical acts Kym Gouchie; Rosewood’s Diary; Barefoot Caravan; and Megan Lane, and keep an ear out for impromptu performances. Make sure to stop by the Public Library table, where kids will be able to take their pick from a huge selection of free books. There will also be other activities specifically designed for children.

Anyone interested in registering to be a vendor, or looking for more information, should contact Lina at the District Office (250-996-8233) as soon as possible.

Some downtown businesses will be open late, so take the opportunity to have a stroll and see what they have to offer. It’ll be a great night in the Fort; so don’t miss this year’s Night Market!
