Finally! Thanks to Joseph, Heritage, and all of those who worked on launching this fine market.
It was packed with people(I bet over a thousand people attended) when I got there around 6:15, most farmers/vendors sold out, bet they will bring extra next week.
Would be cool if it was open later(maybe 4-8 like S. Pas), not sure how people get there at 3pm if you work a regular job(like me). lol
Sad to hear that the Pizza Bus broke down and could not make it also seemed some other vendors did not make it.
Love to see the local backyard farmers. Something you don’t see anywhere else…
Will be back for more.
This is a great wine from a great winery!

626 Night Market Returns: Bigger Space, More Parking, Lots of Food
Los Angeles, CA, May 30th, 2012 –Round two of Southern California’s only Asian Night Market will be held in Pasadena on Saturday, July 28th, 2012 from 4PM to 11:30PM at the picturesque Centennial Square in front of Pasadena City Hall. Admission is free to the public.
The first 626 Night Market in April attracted an enormously overwhelming crowd that far exceeded expectations and provided several challenges that will be addressed in this second event. The organizers have considered the public’s feedback and are improving all aspects of operations and the overall experience. This time, the City Hall venue is four times larger with an area of 250,000 square feet across six blocks. To accommodate attendees, public and private parking lots usually closed on Saturdays will be opened. There will be over 10,000 parking spaces available in the nearby vicinity. Prepaid parking will also be available online through the event website.
The 626 Night Market organizers are working with the City of Pasadena to coordinate proper traffic flow throughout the area. Incentives will be offered to attendees who utilize alternate transportation methods including the nearby Metro Gold Line and buses.
Most importantly, the night market will feature three times the amount of food vendors, with a total of 200 vendors comprised of local businesses and entrepreneurs. There will be a pan-Asian selection of popular foods with an emphasis on Asian street style eats. Additionally, a wide variety of general merchandise vendors and games that are suitable for all ages will be available.
With this lineup of vendors for the second event, the 626 Night Market will create a unique cultural event for the community, bolster local economies, and support small businesses.

Presentation: Immersive Entertainment and Education by Ed Lantz, MSEE, President Vortex Immersion Media, Inc.
There are over 1,000 digital dome “fulldome” theaters worldwide offering visitors an immersive thrill ride through the universe and beyond. These spaces are primarily focused on informal science education in museums, science centers and planetariums, however digital domes are also emerging as a powerful new entertainment format. Entertainment domes have recently opened at Sea World (Turtle Trek 3D), Universal Studios (The Wizarding World of Harry Potter), and City of Dreams in Macau (Dragon’s Treasure). We take a look under the hood at this new format that promises to transform both entertainment and education in this talk that takes place within the Vortex Dome, a fulldome studio in downtown Los Angeles. Ed will discuss immersive theater production and will provide an overview of the fulldome market. A variety of programming will be demonstrated including examples of immersive cinema, artist-in-residence projects, and a real-time educational game featuring NASA datasets.
Ed Lantz, President and CTO of Vortex Immersion Media, is an entertainment technology engineer, entrepreneur and pioneer of large-format digital cinema. He left aerospace engineering in 1990 to transform old-style planetariums into immersive visualization environments, designing over a dozen dome theaters worldwide including the Library of Alexandria in Egypt and Papalote Museo in Mexico City. He trained animators in immersive arts and sciences at ACM/SIGGRAPH, provided creative and technical expertise on numerous fulldome productions, and was awarded two U.S. patents on immersive theater designs. His company, Vortex Immersion Media, produces immersive and interactive experiences for Fortune 500 clients including MTV, Nestle, Nike, Deloitte, Siemens, and Sprint, and operates the Vortex Dome, the first commercial fulldome production studio and events venue located in downtown Los Angeles. Lantz is co-founder of IMERSA and is actively developing industry standards for giant screen digital cinema in cooperation with the Giant Screen Cinema Association. Ed holds a Masters degree in Electrical Engineering from Tennessee Tech University.
