After being canceled last year because of the pandemic, the Market After Dark returned Saturday to downtown Cedar Rapids.
The popular annual event, hosted by the Cedar Rapids Metro Economic Alliance and presented by Alliant Energy, draws tens of thousands of people downtown to peruse vendor booths, listen to live music and enjoy a variety of food and drink options.
With more than 100 vendors, the total this year was slightly fewer than at previous events.
“We’re doing a number of things to allow social distancing, encouraging masks and being mindful,” Julie Kraft, interim communications director for the Cedar Rapids Metro Economic Alliance, told The Gazette last week.
