After much anticipation, the Dawsonville community will once again be able to return to downtown for food trucks and family fun.
The City of Dawsonville will be holding its first Food Truck Friday of 2019 from 5 to 8 p.m. May 3.
As with past food truck nights, the event will be held on Bill Elliott Street and Tucker Avenue, behind the Purple Corn Boutique and across Shoal Creek Road from the sheriff's office. Both streets will be shut down around the Dawson County News for the festival, but should not impede traffic around the square.
Food vendors signed up for Friday’s event include LoLocs BBQ, Gonzo Gourmet, Mo Pho Pho Sho, Old Dad’s Wings, Los Rios Mexican Restaurant, Sweet Treats by Leigh and Frozen Frenzee.
Along with several food truck vendors, visitors can expect a bouncy house and slide, face painting, balloon animals, corn hole, vendors from the Amicalola Regional Farmers Market and more.
There will be designated parking and the city hopes local residents will take advantage of the new sidewalks leading into town and walk to the event.
