The 14th annual Richmond Night Market starts today (Friday, May 16) with another eye-catching theme sure to be popular with adults and children alike.

Founder Raymond Cheung said visitors can immerse themselves in a candy-coloured and candy-covered fantasy section as part of the Magical Candyland theme.

Also new this year is a coupon book, which gives visitors access to sweet deals and discounts on food and merchandise, with more than $150 in potential savings. Each book, which sells for $4, includes a raffle ticket offering a chance to win a trip to Si’Chuan, China,—home of the Pandas—sponsored by Sichuan Airliens.

Located at 8351 River Road, next to the River Rock Casino Resort, and a short three-minute walk from the Bridgepoint Station of the Canada Line in North Richmond, the market is open from 7 p.m. to midnight, Fridays and Saturday, and from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Sundays and statutory holidays. It runs through Oct. 13.
