    Edmonton's first Night Market forging ahead
    http://www.metronews.ca/news/edmonto...ng-ahead-.html

    The first Edmonton Night Market: Shopping Under the Stars will be going ahead this year, says its founder.

    “We are excited, but kind of overwhelmed too. Now it’s about putting everything into play in a short amount of time,” said Arjun Gill.

    In January, Metro reported that the night market, to be held at the CPR yard off of Gateway Boulevard, was facing zoning and permit issues.

    Gill said the zoning permit has been taken care of, and that the city is working with him to remove minor obstacles — such as providing a safe crossing for pedestrians and finalizing a drainage plan — before issuing a development permit.

    He said he expects the permit to be issued in a few weeks, and his team is anticipating starting construction in mid-April.

    The night market — which will open on May 20 and close Sept. 5 — will feature hundreds of retail and food vendors, a beer garden and an open-air auditorium.

    while i wish mr. gill well, this won't be edmonton's first night market nor will it be edmonton's first regular night market nor will it be edmonton's only night market. and metro would only need a cursory review of its own archives to know that.
