97th Street Night Market Wrap-Up!

The 97 Street Night Market hit the streets of Chinatown on Saturday, August 23, 2014, to happy crowds and sunny skies!

A lion’s welcome

We had set out to build on the strengths of last year’s inaugural market and showcase the vibrancy and cultural richness of Chinatown. With the steadfast support of our sponsors, vendors, performers and volunteers, we were able to make it an event that succeeded in these ways and so many more.
