Hey, food truck lovers, get ready to clear some of your summer Friday nights.
The city of Kennewick is launching a new food truck event at the Southridge Sports & Events Complex, catering to the dinner crowd, beginning June 24, a news release said. It runs from 6 to 8 p.m.
Called Sunset at Southridge, it will feature food vendors offering $7 dinner specials, as well as live music and other entertainment, including rides on the Gesa Carousel of Dreams.
Vendors on tap for the event include Kindra’s Wok ‘N Roll, Fresh Out The Box, Jiggy’s Bacon Burgers, Doggie Style Gourmet, Diesel LLC, We Ice and Tri-City Kettle Corn. There will be some seating, but people are encouraged to bring their own chairs and blankets.
Sunset at Southridge is planned four more times throughout the summer: July 8 and 26, and Aug. 5 and 19.
The event makes Kennewick the third community in the Tri-Cities to orchestrate a food truck gathering, which Pasco started doing last year with Food Truck Friday at its downtown farmers market.
Richland began it’s “Let’s Do Lunch” campaign June 17, with food trucks and live music at John Dam Plaza in coordination with its weekly market. The next event in that program is from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. July 1.
