Fan of Peller's Food Truck Eats...the second time for us this year and just love the diversity of all the food vendors, such a fantastic collection.

I wish I could eat 20 different meals in one day...This year I'll try the ones I didn't last time.

Neighboring Kurtz Orchards is running their own sister event which should be checked out.

Except, Niagara on the Lake doesn't want Food Trucks. They took out ads in the local paper protesting food trucks and how it hurts local business/etc.

They are so closed minded, events like this bring in a TON of people for the region.

Thanks for the heads up about the kurtzorchards event.
