HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – It’s the “Battle of the Food Trucks.”
Nearly two-dozen mobile food vendors will descend upon downtown Huntsville hoping for a repeat performance of last month’s hugely successful rally.
But tonight’s event will be a little different. The biggest change the location.
The food trucks will set up here on fountain circle in front of Huntsville City Hall.
If all goes well, this may wind up being where all future downtown food truck rallies are held.
More than 75-hundred people showed up at last month’s event at Booth’s Lumberyard.
Organizers knew they needed to find a larger location and quickly after such a large turnout.
Fountain circle was the answer.
We spoke with a nationally known food blogger who calls Huntsville home.
Christy Jordan of Southern Plate.com says she sees Huntsville becoming a real culinary center for Alabama.
“It’s just a great family experience. Huntsville has always been such a wonderful family friendly town in every way and this just adds a whole new dimension to it,” Jordan said. “To be able to go out when they have the food truck nights and take your kids and go from truck to truck, it’s just a really cool experience.”
The food truck rally is from 6:00 – 9:00p.m.
Admission is free but you do have to pay for the food.
Some people were standing in line for an hour or so last month waiting on their food.
Organizers hope service will go a little more quickly this time around.
