As someone who walks through U.N. Plaza every day, I have to say I was *really* excited to hear about the night market. The event was really well-executed every time I was able to go. I think judging by the amount of support on this idea and the success of the event in attracting thousands of people, it's really a great match for the location.
However, I do think it could improve if you add activities and vendors linked to the immediate community in/around the neighborhood. Here are a few things I'd like to see in the future:
*Kids area with a temporary play ground, bicycling clinic, and art/music
*Change the setup on the white fence gating-- it's a physical barrier that makes the event feel like it's not for the public
*More talent from the local community (all ages) using the performance stage.
*Donation-based vendor like Curry Without Worry (?)
*Nonprofit/services 'alley' where they could set up to provide information and outreach
What other suggestions do you have to improve the event? Are there community partners that would enhance it?
