TAMPA, Fla – World’s Largest Food Truck Festival Ever 3 drew almost 75 food trucks on March 28-29 at the Florida State Fairgrounds.
This is the third year in the making, presented by Jeremy and Candy Gomez from Generation Food Truck along with staff from the Florida State Fairgrounds.
Last year’s Food Truck Festival made history by setting a Guinness World Record for the World’s Largest Food Truck Parade on March 29, 2014. Mr Gomez mentioned on Facebook that they, “had 202 food trucks from all over the country last year.”
This year’s event was more about the overall family experience and quality of the food rather than the number of trucks. Mr Gomez humbly wrote on Facebook, “No need to break our own record this year.”
This year the food trucks were comfortably spread out along the Fairgrounds. It was a family affair that included a fun zone for kids with inflatable slides, bounce houses and more.
On Saturday, there were over 13,000 people that attended the food event; Sunday’s count is still undetermined.
The event was wonderful and a special thanks to Jeremy and Candy for making this year’s event even better.
