Recap: July 8, 2016 What the Truck?! at Park After Dark

The rain didn’t stop us from having another great event at What the truck?! Park After Dark, thank you to everyone who came out to enjoy the food and fun with us.

Race

This year marked the last season of horse racing at Northlands and What the Truck?! was there for a final farewell to Park After Dark for a Friday night on the patio right next to the racetrack!

Trucks

From 5-10 pm, hundreds of Edmontonians stopped by the event to enjoy exciting races and tasty eats from 11 food trucks. There was something for everyone from the Buttered Chicken at Spice Rickshaw to BBQ Ribs at Sculpt Foods and lets not forget the S’mores Cake at Molly’s Eats! But it was Stuffed Gourmet Sausage Company with a delicous selection of gourmet sausages made with all Alberta sourced ingredients and Rapscallions‘ fantastic green onion tacos that appeared to have been the fan favorites!

Food Bank

We welcomed back Edmonton’s Food Bank to our event (they’ll be at every What the Truck?! event this season) and we raised approximately 20 kilograms of food and $360 for the Food Bank. Way to go Edmonton!

As always, we could not run these events without our tireless volunteers who help us keep the event site clean.

A big thank you to Infinite Eye Photography, one of our season sponsors, there helping us document the season and to our other sponsors – GFL Environmental Waste Management, Hendrix Restaurant Equipment and Supplies, and Eberhardt Foods.

Last, but definitely not least – a LARGE thank you goes to our major sponsor – Northlands Park helping make yet another successful event happen at Northlands!
