Food Truck Night is a very popular activity on Monday nights at the ArtsPark. Nearly 2,000 people come together regularly to purchase food from about 25 to 28 food trucks. During a recent night, one could choose from a wide variety of cuisine including hamburgers, steak sandwiches, grilled chicken entrees, tacos, ice cream and other treats. Many families got together to enjoy a fun night. Some brought blankets and had a picnic. There is something for everyone.

“I like the variety of food you can buy here,” said Jamie Lundy.
