SAN BERNARDINO >> One year after five food trucks parked downtown for a food fest, nine trucks along with other entertainment will mark the one-year anniversary of the monthly event Thursday.

Food trucks will be at Court Street Square, at E and Court Streets, from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m.

The lineup includes JoJo’s Grill-A-Dog, Smoke ’Em If You Got ’Em BBQ, My Delight Cupcakery and Cousins Maine Lobster.

A live band and Bernie, the Inland Empire 66ers mascot, also are coming, and both X103.9 and SBD Fest — the air show planned for Saturday — will offer prizes.

Third Thursday Food Fest, on the third Thursday of every month since October 2014, aims to bring people downtown and show the potential for retail development in the area.

Each month has brought hundreds of residents and others downtown.
