While browsing my social media – Instagram, I came across a short video of an IG user, @Hungryhugh whom I have been following for quite a while now. It featured a food festival of some sort that’s quite near my place. Coincidentally, I have a friend visiting from the Philippines and knowing her, I decided that we’d go there and check the festival out. And it did not disappoint!
The OC Night Market is the original and largest night market in the United States. It features over 200 vendors from food, crafts, retail and merchandise. Below are snippets of the awesome day we had at the festival!
I wasn’t able to take a lot of photos but there are a lot of stores that sell novelty items and you’re sure to find nifty things that you’ll surely love like handmade stuff toys, artworks such as paintings and sketches, flowers that live forever, Unique Jewelry, Accessories and so much more.
Aside from the vendors there are pop-up booths for entertainment too. Such as the live concert which features great music from local bands/artists and awesome booths for games for the whole family to enjoy and we definitely did enjoy all of ’em!
Of course, there’s a ton of Food vendors! Like seriously! My friend and I didn’t know what to do at first – should we go around and buy the food we like right away or should we scout the whole area first and take note of the standouts then buy them later. Prepare yourself and make sure you use your time wisely and better come early too, as people multiply by the minute. Literally.
We were in a mess. A beautiful kind of mess. The type of mess you’d want to be in. We just decided to do both of the strategies when it comes to food hunting. If we really like the food we buy it right away, if it’s interesting; we take note and save it for later – and that’s how we did it. Check out the snaps of the foodventure we had at OC Night Market!
We capped the night off with a bang. We watched a street dance battle between two awesome crews! There are times when even the audience joined in including an adorable little girl! How awesome and cute is that!!!
