Oh the anticipation is killing me!

If a festival of food trucks appeared in your neighborhood, you too might go crazy at the thought of stuffing your belly with the samples of delicious fare. So when I heard that several people were organizing such an event in my own town, I was filled with joy. FoodStruck is coming to York 5 to 9 p.m. Oct. 11 at Pershing Avenue between Market and Philadelphia streets.
Q: What is FoodStruck?
A: foodstruck is a Food Truck Block Party taking over Pershing Ave. in downtown York on October 11th. We’re closing the street and popping up with food trucks, YorShoppes craft/vintage market and live music.
Q: How did this event come to be and who is the driving force behind it?
A: The food truck “party” isn’t a new idea. Most major cities and some small cities have a monthly or weekly event where all of the trucks gather and serve food all at the same time. We’re just modeling ourselves after that. Our team is a group of folks dedicated to making York City even cooler than it already is. JJ Sheffer, Matt & Jess Ensminger, Sean Kenny, Meagan Feeser, my wife Allison and myself.
Q: What can people expect at the event?
A: They can expect to eat! We’d love for people to feel that they can try things from two or three or four trucks throughout the night while enjoying music and shopping between bites. There will be a wide variety of trucks and I know I personally am going to do my best to try something from each one. We’ll have everything from spring rolls to pizza to pork buns to sandwiches. They’ll be able to interact with the food truck owners who have traveled from Lancaster, Harrisburg, and beyond, as well as a few from here in York.
