Summer nights in California are when people come alive! When it comes to making plans, the day is almost too hot, and the nights are just perfectly warm. One place I like to visit during the summer is the 626 Night Market in Arcadia!
Near the Santa Anita Horse Race Track and right next door to the Santa Anita mall is this outdoor market that only happens one weekend a month per summer – and it’s happening this weekend! If you can’t make it, there’ll be another one next month. And if you really can’t make either of these, they will be in Orange County the weekend of 8/25-27. It’s $3 on Fridays and Sundays; $5 on Saturdays. What’s cool about it? It’s a leisurely outdoorsy thing to do on a weekend night, filled with fair food, crafts, toys, music, and mingling. Kids can go and service pets. Keep in mind, most vendors only take cash and that seating is sometimes hard to find, and the bathrooms are kind of far from the food areas. It is a nice way to spend a G-rated semi-energetic Friday night though.
Check out the link because they oftentimes have coupons for vendors, plus there’s a directory so you can go with a game plan. (P.S. it will be sunny until like 7:30 pm, so bring a hat or SPF if you go early)
