The third annual Food Truck Championship is taking place this weekend on Saturday, May 17, at the Jacksonville Landing.
Sponsored by the Jax Truckies, Intuition Ale Works and Jacksonville Landing, this year’s event is expected to be more popular than ever. The event goes from 4 to 9 pm. A portion of proceeds from the event will benefit Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Northeast Florida.
Last year’s event drew thousands, and this year’s event is anticipated to be even bigger. One of the event’s organizers, Mike Field reported that planning for this year included the expectation of larger crowds than ever before.
“Three city blocks are being closed off: there will be more than double the space and vendors this year,” said Field.
On the Fly food truck has been the reigning champion for two years running, and it looks like they are going to have some competition this year as over 30 trucks are competing for the title of best food truck in North Florida. A panel of judges will decide which truck is the winner.
