The United Way Central Plains Night Market was finally able to run at the Fort la Reine Museum after two years of cancellations, and both vendors and buyers were both ecstatic to be back.
Otis Matthews, President of United Way Central Plains, says this was the perfect event to run coming out of COVID and it was paired with an excellent venue. He goes into detail on how it feels to have the communities support for the night market.
"It's so good to see people out again after being cooped up for so long," explains Matthews. "The kids out here smiling and having a great time and running around Fort la Reine Museum."
The night market saw vendors galore as families got to see everything from woodworking projects to lemonade and so much more.
"It's a lot of hard work put on by a lot of people," notes Matthews. "It's so much going on to pull off an event like this and we did our best to play a key part in it."
A second night market will be held on August 26 with a $5 admission fee, while kids 12 and under get in for free.
