Food trucks get feted (and rained on) at AwesTRUCK
AwesTRUCK, Canada's largest food truck rally, brought together more than 50 mobile kitchens on Saturday and as you may recall, the weather was super shitty. The outdoor venue at Fort York's Garrison Commons quickly became a mud pit and flooded in the ceaseless rain.
Of the 2,800 plus attendees expected, only a fraction were willing to brave the extreme conditions. It was unfortunate for all the trucks, especially the numerous out-of-towners who had come in just for the day. On the plus side, there were ZERO line-ups, portions were being doled out generously and, for the most part, everyone was trying to make the best of it.
For the second year, AwesTRUCK also recognized the excellent concepts, menus and people that are tirelessly pulling us out of the dark ages of street-vending, and, adding a little flavour and fun to Toronto's streetscape.
