If you can even get into the parking lot on the evening of the OC Night Market, consider that a mini triumph. This event, the first Night Market of the warm-weather seasons, is so dang popular, even the massive Orange County Fairground lot can barely contain the throngs of people flocking to consume numerous street-food and drink novelties. Yes, there’s live music and shopping and art, but the real draw of the OC Night Market is the sheer quantity of snacks and treats ranging from old-school traditional to straight-up bizarre. Rainbow elote and Croissant-concha hybrids? Cup O’ Noodles ramen piled high with gourmet add-ins? Yes, please. Drinks served in giant novelty lightbulbs or gallon-sized baby bottles? Just take our money already.
