Welcome to Chandelierville!
Find out more about Chandelierville here.
After an incredible summer putting on the Inglewood Night Markets, the find it team is back for one more creative pop-up event to brighten up the last few weeks of 2013.
Neighbours have been building fun and funky "chandeliers" with Christmas lights, in order to transform Inglewood and Ramsay into Chandelierville!
On December 15th, we toured the neighbourhoods to take in the 30 entries in our sparkling event. It's not too late to see them for yourself - chandeliers will remain on display over the holidays (there's a map here). Or take a look at the Chandelier Gallery here on our website. Help us choose the one that will receive the "OOH AAH" People's Choice Award! You can vote for your favourite chandelier until midnight on December 31st. Stay warm and enjoy the show!
Thanks for an amazing season!
Wow, did we ever go out with a bang! Talk about ending on a high note! This year, the find it team put on a series of Night Markets in Inglewood. We were off to a rainy start back in June, but by September, the Night Market had become a lot more than a market. The whole neighbourhood was chockablock with people and chatter and really great vibes. Stores and restaurants were packed. The market itself was so comfy and cool, a great place to browse and meet friends and just generally hang out. The weather was perfect. And the bands were fabulous - it was great to have the music permeating the site all night long, and M&M's steps were a natural place to sit and listen. Our guess for attendance was 1750-2000 people over the 5.5 hours - maybe more.
Thanks to Gravity Cafe and Bite Groceteria for truly being the heart of the market! And to our neighbours and sponsors, particularly Critical Mass, Little Rock, Lane Quinn, and John Kerr.
But mostly, thanks to all of you for coming out and helping us make this happen. It was a summer of great teamwork and fun.
If you like us and what we're doing, we could sure use a few more regulars on our team year round, planning new pop-up adventures! If that's too much for you, we hope we can call on you next year to help with find it events. Contact us if you'd like to be on our email list, or if you have any ideas you'd like to send our way.
