Organizer Josh Davies says he didn’t expect the throngs, 6,000 strong, at this past weekend’s Boardwalk on Bulverde Food Truck Throw Down. But, it was so much fun it’s all happening again the last weekend in September (Sept. 30, Oct. 1-2. )
“We’ll trim down the number of trucks next time to around 20,” says Davies. Beer will be a featured item at Octobeer Fest, the Food Truck Throw Down’s take on Octoberfest. The event is free for attendees, but there is a food truck fee of $500. This fee has risen from last time’s entry fee of $200.
Davies says that some of the trucks in a back area weren’t getting much traffic, which is part of the reason they decided to trim down the number of trucks.
Davies also said that the Smoke Shack, by Conger Catering, won the People’s Choice Award this past weekend and took home a cool $4,000 prize.
