Following a successful first week, the Food Truck Fridays event hosted by the Grain Valley Fair and Grain Valley Partnership at the corner of Main and Walnut looks to expand its food truck offerings in future weeks.
Grain Valley Partnership Executive Director Tasha Lindsey said they have learned from the first week, noting that long lines at each food truck quickly illustrated the need for additional trucks to meet demand.
During the public comment session of the June 22nd Board of Aldermen meeting, Lindsey said the purpose behind the event has proven successful.
“It’s bringing people into Grain Valley, it’s bringing people downtown.”
Lindsey requested police barricades to block off Walnut from Main Street until the parking lot at the Grain Valley Post Office to accommodate additional trucks and seating for attendees.
Food Truck Fridays continues June 26th from 4:30pm—8:00pm. Information regarding scheduled food trucks can be found on the Grain Valley Fair and Grain Valley Partnership’s Facebook pages.
