The Mobile Food Festival is coming to Main Street Little Rock on Oct. 1. 

Here's one of the few things we're willing to mark our calendar six months in advance: The Mobile Food Festival is coming to Main Street Little Rock from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Oct. 1. The Downtown Partnership is blocking off a portion of the street, likely between 3rd and 7th, according to DLRP's Sharon Priest.

The festival will feature local food trucks, music and kids' activities.

The Times, which has been a major proponent for mobile food, is a sponsor.

"We've been talking about wanting to do something on Main Street, and food trucks seem to be something that's piqued everyone's interest here and in other cities," Priest said.

Surely another inspiration? The Rep's Angel Galloway in our Big Ideas Issue suggested that Main Street let food trucks congregate there for free. The idea was called "Reinvigorate Main Street with Food Trucks."

    Just think: If Democrats had turned out 78,000 more votes in three states in November, people could be reveling today in the prospect of impeaching and convicting President Hillary Clinton, not Donald Trump, as some Republican lawmakers had promised to try to do if she won.
