The Summer Night Market
12631 Vulcan Way
With school back in session, the leaves beginning to fall off the trees in my neighborhood, and the slowly shortening daylight hours, I’m reminded that the summer is winding down. Albeit, the warmer temperatures are holding strong this week, so its feeling nice to have our summer season extend even longer this year. And with just two more weekends to go before this year’s rendition of The Summer Night Market in Richmond comes to a close, I thought I’d type up some quick thoughts on my experience this year…
When things such as annual festivals or public gatherings grow over the years due to the success of the original or early years, its both a blessing and a curse. On the plus side, its wonderful that a small concept can become something that’s sustainable and has organic growth and continued popularity. More offerings, great number of attractions – all good things from my perspective, especially when something grows from something very small initially.
