Saturday: Main Street Food Truck Festival

Posted By on Fri, Sep 30, 2011 at 9:22 AM

The Main Street Food Truck Festival is Saturday.
  • The Main Street Food Truck Festival is Saturday.

This Saturday, starting at 11 a.m., Main Street will morph into a food truck-lovers paradise as the Main Street Food Truck Festival gets rolling. From Third Street to Seventh Street, it'll be jam-packed with games, contests, eats, treats, tunes, brews and more.

Now, I know what you might be thinking: Our Beloved Hogs take on the Texas A&M Aggies at the Palace in Dallas Saturday, with a kickoff scheduled for 11 a.m. Well the folks at the Downtown Little Rock Partnership will have two 55-inch TVs set up so folks can watch the game.

The Rep is hosting a beer garden and a costume sale from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., so if you've always wanted to own a piece of Rep history, here's your chance. Maybe they'll have a coat of many colors from the production of "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat." With Halloween approaching, this is perfectly timed. There will be arts and crafts vendors set up between Fifth and Sixth streets.

Participating vendors include: Banana Leaf, Big Poppa’s Mobile, Christians Take-Out Too, Dream Eats Café Mobile Food, Green Cuisine, Grills on Wheels, Hot Dog Mike, Kristina’s Hawaiian Ice, King Blvd., Kwik Dawg Stop, Le Pops, Lewis & Edna’s Mobile, Loncheria Mexicana Alicia, Papa’s Burgers & Dogs, Peace Hog Mobile Café, Pierre’s Gourmet Pizza, Taqueria Jalisco San Juan and Wishbone’s.

There will be performances from Crooked Roots, Monkhouse, Fire & Brimstone, The Justin Bank Band, DJ Dylan, the Porter's Jazz Café house band and Underclaire.

Everything will wrap up around 7 p.m., but if you're still in the mood for good times, you can stick around for a performance of "Ring of Fire" at The Rep.

    You've got to figure that a band from frozen-ass Winnipeg is just gonna be way gnarlier and tougher than a band from some sun-kissed tropical clime where people wear tank tops and flip-flops year-round.
