What's better than food, friends, and a night under the stars? Thousands of visitors were able to experience just that during our annual Fall StrEAT Food Festival! For the very first time, this highly anticipated event took place on a Thursday evening, yet it was still an occasion worth talking about.
This year, over 50 food trucks and vendors participated in our tasty event with dishes ranging from tacos to BBQ, cupcakes to jerk chicken, waffles to pizza in a cone! The warm end-of-summer weather made the night perfect for everyone to enjoy their favorite food with their favorite people.
There was so much to explore as local eateries featured exclusive bites and al fresco dining, Main Street retailers held special promotions, and live music bookended the streets. While there were lots of options to choose from, many eateries participated in the apple dish contest, creating all kinds of uniquely crafted dishes using - you guessed it - apples! It was a tough decision, but the night resulted in four winners:
Best Apple Dish – Food Trucks:
- First: Cannoli World

- Second: Revolution Taco
- Third: All of a Sudden Desserts
Best Apple Dish – Gourmet Food Vendor: Made in the Shade Lemonade
