Food Truck Friday in Tower Grove Park

Last night was my first time at Food Truck Friday so I took a stroll just to check it out. 
Lots of other people had the same idea.  I had no idea it would be so well attended.
The ideal way to enjoy the event is to bring a blanket or folding chairs so you can relax and enjoy the food.

Some people had this part well planned out.  I even saw someone with a folding table.

The food trucks are lined up along Southwest Drive.
So you find something that looks good to you and get in line.
While I was there this truck had the longest line.

I took a picture of the line to show you what I mean.  I think these guys decided to find a truck with a shorter line.

There were lots of choices and I know I would want to taste the food from more than one.

Purchases must be made with cash so be sure to plan ahead with that in mind.

It's a good idea to bring your own beverages, or you can get in the beer line.

Desert was not forgotten as you can see here.

There were also TWO cupcake trucks.  Since we came early there was no line.

We took more than a few home to enjoy after our dinner elsewhere.

Even the clean up was organized.

Someone even figured out that a "cool off" location might be order.  It certainly was last night although the park is always a little cooler than it is anywhere else outdoors.

It's a very nice family outing.

Children and adults seemed to be enjoying themselves.

Even well behaved pets were welcome.

They are scheduled to do this again in August and September.

I don't have dates so you'll have to be on the lookout.

I think when the word gets out the crowds will get bigger.  Maybe that means more food trucks as well.

I didn't get pictures of all the trucks and I forgot to count them.  The event is open from 5-8.  I was there at 6 PM and as you can see it was going strong.
