After the success of the first Kearney Food Truck Rally, the second event will have more seating, more live music and more food trucks, organizers said.
The second food truck rally, hosted by 24 Hour Tees, will start at 5:30 p.m. tonight at 110 W. 24th St. It will continue until 9 p.m., or “whenever the crowd dies down,” according to a news release.
Returning food trucks will be Natalie’s Mexi-Kart, The Food Truck, The Flippin’ Sweet, Sprocket’s Famous Freedom Dogs and Grinders. Two new food trucks will also be at the event: Barista’s Daily Grind, which will sell espresso drinks, smoothies and other blended beverages; and Tropical Sno, a flavored shaved ice truck.
The first food truck rally on June 11 attracted more than 750 people, the news release said. Organizers asked those in attendance for their feedback, which included more seating, more food trucks, live music and a beer garden.
“We were absolutely blown away by the incredible turnout,” said Chais Meyer, 24 Hour Tees co-founder. “This week we’ll have seating for 100 people, provided by the local AAA Rentals. There will be two hours of live instrumental music and we’ll have at least seven food trucks, instead of five, spread out between the 24 Hour Tees and Computer Hardware parking lots.”
Meyer said that 24 Hour Tees plans to continue the food truck rallies, as long as people keep coming.
“It seems like more food trucks contact us weekly requesting to get involved in future Thursday rallies. We’re excited to keep this growing, if that’s what Kearneyites would like to see happen,” he said.
Food trucks that may join future rallies include a Cajun food truck, a goat meat food truck, a barbecue food truck and a dessert food truck, the news release said.
