RENO, Nev.- Reno Food Truck Fridays are back for the 2013 season. Despite a chill in the air on Friday evening, hundreds turned out to the downtown Citicenter to take advantage of gourmet food and live music. The event is designed to support local businesses.
"We do this to promote the local food truck culture and show off all the culinary talents of all these small business owners," Haley Wood of GourMelt Grilled Cheese Truck said. "We love to see all these people down here, it's so exciting."
A lot of the vendors are returning from last year; Great Basin Brewery will be serving up their signature brews all summer long.
"It's so much fun down here," Doug Booth of Great Basin said. "The food is great and we enjoy sharing excellent beer with everyone so it's a good time."
This year there's a new addition to the truck lineup: The Biggest Little Fashion Truck will be showing off designer clothes and accessories during the festival.
"This is pretty rad, it's my first time at this venue and the music is incredible," Biggest Little Fashion Truck Owner Vincent Lucido said. "The food is great I mean, gourmet food trucks, how can you beat that? Now we have fashion here too so while you're waiting for your food you can get your fashion on!"
You can catch Food Truck Fridays the first and third Friday of the month through October from 5-9 p.m. at the Citicenter in downtown Reno.
