LETTER: Surrey Night Market eyes longer run

The Editor,

On behalf of Surrey Night Market, I would like to thank the public, our vendors and partners for their unconditional support in making our first season a success.

We would also like to take this opportunity to thank the management and staff of the Cloverdale Rodeo Exhibition Association, City of Surrey (including the bylaws and licensing department), Fraser Health, RCMP, Surrey fire department, St. John Ambulance, Cops for Cancer, Cypress Security, Stage Performers, media and sponsors, and our contracted staff, friends and volunteers.

It was a very humble beginning on our part to provide fun times to the local families living in the Fraser Valley. We made a very sincere effort to include something for every member of the family – food, merchandise, entertainment and rides for children.

It was a very good learning experience for us and we are very grateful for the feedback from the attendees.

We will do our best to incorporate the suggested changes next year.

In 2015, Surrey Night Market will operate for a longer duration – possibly from the last weekend of May to mid-September. We will try to open the night market on Sundays as well.

For more information on the next year’s "bigger and better" operations, you can contact us at surreynightmarket@gmail.com or 604-805-3440.

Satbir Cheema,

director Surrey Night Market
