Good Times at the 626 Night Market

The ever so appetizing hot Cheetos fries

The 626 Night Market food festival is located in Arcadia’s Santa Anita Park and Costa Mesa’s OC Fair and Event Center. Named after the San Gabriel area code (626), the annual festival features fun and surprising treats that don’t come cheap. My favorite selections were the cheesy hot Cheetos fries and the Korean corn dog. My two friends who joined me were not big eaters, but we were curious about the big buzz surrounding the 626 menu at the Arcadia venue.

Along with the hot Cheetos fries, we bought an extra large sized iced cold lemonade and chocolate mousse that was made into a cute bulldog. The icy beverage kept us cool during the hot evening. On top of great food, the 626 Market had fun games to play like ring toss, skee-ball, and basketball toss, where players could win cool prizes. At the end of the day we were completely exhausted, but we captured memories that will last a long time.
