The 4th annual Night Market brought out a huge crowd on Aug. 16.

Along with live music, delicious food and a variety of vendors, there was something available for all to enjoy and take in the summer night with some good old fashioned community spirit.

The market featured farmers, artisans and businesses from Fort St. James and beyond.

Various bands performed including: Samson’s Delilah, Ben Sures, Blackberry Wood, Barefoot Caravan and the Nak’azdli Drummers.

For those ambitious photographers, a photo scavenger hunt took place.

Participants ventured all around town following clues. Once the hunt was completed, their photos were e-mailed and entered into a contest.

For Fort St. James District Councillor, Dave Birdi, the night proves yet again, the boundless community spirit that Fort St. James continues to offer.

“It’s a good turnout and this continues to draw people every year,” Birdi said.

“This is such a great way to bring the community together during the summer months.”
