Closing out 626 Night Market for 2013

For the past three months of this summer, there has been an Asian foodie enthusiast phenomenon. Hundreds of vendors and food trucks line the grounds of the Arcadia Santa Anita Park Race Track from 4pm till midnight for this year's 626 Night Market to bring the essence of what the famed Taiwanese night markets offered.

I haven't participated all summer but decidedly made the (very quick) journey to the last 626 Night Market for this year. We arrived to the giant chaotic parking lot and surprisingly found a compact little spot in the farthest corner of Narnia.

I'm sure most people feared the uncomfortable humidity and heat of the late summer in the San Gabriel Valley but this particular day's heavy set clouds gave a nice cover to enable us to walk around without the company of stress dripping down our backs. Thanks, clouds.

We found ourselves surrounded by endless options and decidedly jumped in head first for this gorge party. 

Soon enough the sun set into the horizon 

And the mighty Odona ran her last race for the evening

And the parents took their last movie star pic for the night

How many Mommas can you spot?

We got back home feeling a mixture of satisfaction and regret. Good night, 626 Night Market! Thanks for the fulfilled discomfort..till next year!
