The 680 Night Market which was held on Saturday, February 13th, 2021 hosted a total of 30 food and handicraft vendors. The night concluded at its usual hour 9pm, however, as the theme was around Valentine’s Day, there was a Palauan cupid, a photo booth with printed photos as giveaways, dance performances by Ngardmau: Ercheroi dancers, Peleliu: Sechedui dancers, and Melekeok: Artingalek dancers, and with live music from Kendall T., Vema, and Kayama. Besides the delicious foods and various items being sold, generous donations from vendors allowed for fun games and prize giveaways making a fun memorable night for the crowd.
PVA State & Community Programs Manager Katarina Mad shares, “The number of registered vendors for this night market is one of the largest in the history of night markets. It was delightful to see new faces both at the booths and in the crowd. This was also the largest crowd we have had since the closure of borders.”
