If this event is as good as the IE Food Truck Fest (minus the Dixie Salsa Competition) 2012, the IE Food Truck Fest 2011, or the IE Food Truck and Brew Fest 2011 this should be good. For those of you who were not so thrilled by the Dixie Salsa Competition, don’t worry- they heard your concerns loud and clear, and this won’t be a repeat. The Citizens Business Bank has organized numerous food truck fests to bring this bit of freedom to the IE and has this part down to a science.
Tickets are $10 General Admission, $8 in Advance; Children age 6 and under are free. Parking is free. Early Entry tickets are an additional $5. Tickets may be purchased at www.axs.com (plus fees) or at Citizens Business Bank Arena box office. Visit www.iefoodtruckfest.com for more details.
