Founded in the year 2000 by entrepreneur Raymond Cheung, and first held at the Continental Centre strip mall on Cambie Road, the Richmond Night Market has from modest beginnings grown to become an international attraction, and one of North America's largest outdoor markets. Year after year since it first opened, attendance at the market continued to grow, forcing Cheung to relocate to the massive parking lot beside Lansdowne Centre shopping mall. But again, the night market became a victim of its own success, and the attraction had to relocate to find a more suitable location for the massive crowds, including the current site of the River Rock Casino Resort, as well as another location on Vulcan Way. After a four-year hiatus during which Cheung eagerly sought a new location elsewhere in the Lower Mainland, he finally hit paydirt in 2011 at Duck Island, at the northwest corner of Lulu Island, and just a stone's throw away from the Bridgeport Sta-

Raymond Cheung has done it again. The founder of the original Richmond Night Market, who every year keeps the crowds coming back by offering a mix of great entertainment, food and a picturesque backdrop, manages to somehow reimagine the waterfront market to keep it fresh, new and exciting.

The new 18-acre site is double the previous location's area, is more centrally located, has better access to public transit, including the multi-billion dollar Canada Line, as well as bus service to other parts of the Lower Mainland.

The 2014 version of the Richmond Night Market doesn't disappoint.

With the venue secured in 2011, Cheung went about tailor-making the site to accomodate his grand plans for the market's return in 2012.

This year's theme is Magical Candyland, with a candycoloured and candy-covered fantasy area, where kids are invited into the Candy Castle, where they pose for pictures and sample sweets from around the world.

And he did exactly that, after securing support from Richmond city council, which gave him a twoyear operating permit for the site next to the River Rock Casino Resort.

This year's event features an expanded carnival area, where visitors can test their skills as they try to win oversized stuffed toys.

Dubbed the Return of the Dragon, the 2012 market drew more than 750,000 people to the new waterfront location off No. 3 Road, at River Road, making it a massive success.

Before moving to its current location at Duck Island, next to the River Rock Casino Resort at the north end of No. 3 Road, the night market was held behind the Home Depot, on Vulcan Way.

Richmond Night Market has no shortage of things to see and do. It's certainly come a long way since opening at Continental Centre on Cambie Road. It wasn't until it opened for the first time at Lansdowne Centre, that locals really got a feeling for how massive this market is.

Then in 2013, Cheung continued his committment to keep his night market fresh and new, by introducing the Magical Duck Island Adventure board game, which featured more than $100,000 in prizes, with the grand prize being an airplane ticket to the winner's destination of choice, anywhere in the world.

Before moving to Duck Island, the market was also located behind the Home Depot, on Vulcan Way, and even on the current site of the River Rock Casino Resort.

Also added were larger-than-life duck figurines dressed in international costumes and colours, which provided visitors with a curious photo opportunity.

The market then relocated to Lansdowne Centre mall, where it drew thousands of people nightly.

Also new was a carnival area, where kids had a space of their own to have fun.

For the best deal, visitors are encouraged to purchase the $4 coupon book, which offers $40 in value of games at the carnival area.

But what kept visitors coming back was the quality of the 250 merchandise vendors and more than 100 food booths in the international food fair, which had something to suit all tastebuds.
