Panana Night Market

Lots of food will be for sale at Panana Night Market at Ontario Mills.

Have you ever craved some hot Cheetos carne asada fries with a side of squid-on-a-skewer, only to wash it all down with a giant LED baby bottle full of agua fresca?

Or have you wanted to know what a cotton candy burrito would feel and taste like?

Now you can because the Inland Empire is getting its own night market this summer (July 19-21) at the Ontario Mills Mall.

Panana Night Market has marked its ground as the Inland Empire’s largest multicultural food festival, featuring more than 100 different vendors selling food and art, along with live performances, games, rides and more.

The cost is $3 for entry and parking is free. The outdoor event will run Friday through Sunday from 4 to 11 p.m. in the northwest parking lot.

Attendees can enjoy all kinds of performances, whether it's music from their neighborhood up-and-coming boycrush bands or more traditional dances that highlight different cultures, such as Pacific Island or Mexican Folklorico dancers. Local artists will be bringing in a mix from all kinds of genres, including indie pop, jazz, and alternative rock.

Panana Night Market features a variety of other performers as well, such as fire dancers, children's performances and local DJ artists.

Another Panana Night Market weekend will take place Aug. 16-19. For more information, visit
