MARKETTE: Enjoy the summer night at Backesto Park with the Northside Night Market.

This Northside San Jose neighborhood has welcomed global residents for decades—it was predominantly Italian before Black, Filipino, Mexican and Vietnamese families settled in. “It is like a little United States,” the Mercury News wrote in 1966. This summer, the area continues its community-building efforts by inviting locals to Backesto Park for an evening of food and fun. The park’s historic fountain marks its 100th birthday next year. This weekend, savor the warm summer night with snacks from Mister Softee NorCal, Takoz Mod Mex and I Love Cheesesteak. Plus an R&B performance by Kamiko. The market runs every Saturday through Aug. 31.Northside Night Market
