There was something for everyone at the Gloucester Chamber of Commerce Summer Nights Market held last Wednesday, July 16, on Carriage Court. The theme for the evening was Carnival Night, and activities included a bounce house, cotton candy, music by Something Different, and tug of war. Vendors sold everything from watermelons and preserves to books, artwork and antiques. The market is held each Wednesday through Aug. 27.
