Food trucks are big across the United States, but you don’t have to hit the road to try the best that the state has to offer.
On July 22-23, mobile units from across the state are coming to San Antonio for the city’s first food truck throw down.
The event will take place at Boardwalk on Bulverde, 14732 Bulverde Road, and will feature up to 30 trucks offering all kinds of treats.
Cameron Davies, who owns the park and the neighboring Cruising Kitchens, has been planning the event for months, but just settled on dates.
“We’re really excited about it,” he said.
Live music, a disc jockey and events for kids will be held alongside the tastings, which are set for noon to 10 p.m. July 22 and 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. July 23, though “if people are having a good time,” it might go later both nights, he said.
The cost for admission is $3 for adults, free for kids and will include a ballot for the four different categories of food, which are yet to be determined, he said. The winners will be announced at the end of the evening, July 23.
Davies said there will be plenty of parking in neighboring lots. He’s also planning on opening a new arcade and play space for kids. Beer and wine specials will be available.
More information will be available as the event approaches.
