Various exquisite dazzling lanterns will be displayed throughout the market, weaving a colorful sparkling world.

The Illumination Night Market will be held behind Home-Depot, just west of Knight Street Bridge in Richmond. For the first weekend, May 5 – May 7, you can enjoy free admission to experience the new market for yourself!
