RICHMOND (NEWS 1130) — You may notice some extra traffic in Richmond Friday near the River Rock Casino as you can once again shop at the Richmond Night Market.
The annual event returns after the pandemic didn’t allow it to open in May.
Malcolm Brodie, the mayor of Richmond, says the market attracts lots of people to the city.
“They’ll go to the night market, they’ll go to the River Rock, they’ll go to the casino, they’ll take in some entertainment once it’s back up and running.”
Although the market will be smaller than previous years due to COVID-19 protocols, Brodie believes it will be safe.
“Night market people have really gone out of their way to make sure that they are complying with every single rule that there is. So I’m confident that it’s going to be a safe event, something for the entire family.”
He says he’s happy to see the event return, after it had to be cancelled last year due to the pandemic.
