    Hi there, We just noticed that your image you are using is actually of the Shipyards Friday Night Market and not the Shipyards Festival (Called Shipped last year).

    The Shipyards Friday Night Market’s last night of the season is this Friday, Sept 27th from 5-10pm. PS. Thanks for posting our photo about our market, though!
