The night market was scrapped. It would seem they did not want to change the name from RICHMOND night market, and they posted on CRAIGSLIST to recruit volunteers rather then hiring qualified personal for event coordination and traffic control. I as a QB resident am GLAD this FARCE is overwith as they had no ability to provide adequate parking levels for the estimated attendance.
