First ‘Night Market’ Draws Manageable, Excited Crowd

The first Chelsea Night Market is being deemed a success, bringing a good crowd to Luther Place for the music, vendors and excitement in the downtown.

“It was great,” said Downtown Coordinator Mimi Graney. “We had a decent, manageable crowd. The attendees and vendors were all really pleased. We had lots of neighbors attend, which was great. There were no major technical snags and the fire performance was a hit.”

The Night Market blocked off the City
parking lot behind the main business district, using the refurbished Chelsea
Walk as an entry point. On the lot were vendors with all kinds of wares, food
servers and a stage. Musical acts were popular, but the hit of the night was
the Boston Circus Guild’s fire-breathing and juggling performance.

The next Night Market will be on July 13,
and coordinators said to look for some new and different things to be on the
docket.

The next event for the downtown, however, is the Fiesta Verano – a great Latin music themed event that was cancelled last year three times due to rain. This year they hope to find some better luck.

They will have the Fiesta on Second Street
and in collaboration with the Chelsea Cooperative.

Look for a cowboy them, Graney said.

“We’re embracing
a rodeo theme this year with pony rides and a bounce house for little ones,”
said Graney. “A ‘bike rodeo,’ presented by the Chelsea Bike and Ped Committee
and MassBike, is an obstacle course and games for all ages so bring your bike
or trike. Over on the big lawn a mechanical bull will be bucking and kicking
all riders for your merriment.”
