Marketing Melodie Emcees the San Diego Night Market and has your Free Tickets!
I am very honored and excited that the organizers of the San Diego Night Market invited me to emcee their event this coming Saturday October 4th. I’ll be at the main entertainment stage from 5pm-8pm where I have the privilege of introducing our very own Mayor Kevin Faulconer along with many other talented performers and distinguished members of the community.
What is a “Night Market” you might ask? Well just as the name suggests, it’s a street market, usually held outdoors that’s open at night. Night markets are organized so you can leisurely stroll through all the vendors, shop while getting some great savings all while enjoying authentic street food from different cultures. The San Diego Night Market in particular aims to fulfill the following mission:
- Promote Asian Pacific American culture in cuisine, arts, and music
- Support local businesses – Asian and Non-Asian, small and large
- Cultivate innovation, creativity, and entrepreneurship
- Foster volunteerism, leadership, networking, and teamwork
- Expand the cultural vibrancy of the San Diego region
My first experience of attending a night market was a few years ago when I was invited to Hong Kong for a speaking engagement. I had plenty of time to be a tourist, shop and enjoy everything Hong Kong had to offer. One of my stops was the “Ladies’ Market”, the most popular and busy night markets of the area. Even though I was told it would be busy, I was not expecting it to be as packed as it was. I snapped the photo to your right of ladies at the Ladies’ Night Market in Hong Kong. Keep in mind, this photo was taken around 11pm! People were excited about the new shipment of purses here. There was so much enthusiasm and energy from all the ladies (and gentlemen) at Ladies’ Market. It was definitely a fun experience which is why I’m looking forward to experiencing the night market culture right here in sunny San Diego.
On Saturday you can expect to satisfy your taste buds with delicious food, learn to cook at the various cooking demonstrations, be awed by amazing dance performances and so much more.
