Springfield Ohio Rotary Gourmet Food Truck Competition 2016

Anita and I just returned from our first trip to the Springfield Ohio Rotary Gourmet Food truck competition. Man, what a great trip! The competition is held in a nice park in down Springfield, alongside a slow-flowing creek with lots of trees. Over 30 trucks were on site, lining a street through the park. As you can expect, just about every cuisine you could imagine was available, from BBQ to pizza to crab cakes to Korean tacos. The trucks were competing for a $10,000 first prize, which is huge, so you know they all brought their A-game and the best foods you can get!

They had a stage set up for live music, which was quite enjoyable to listen to while devouring a few loaded gyros from the Pitabilities truck that were the best either of us had ever had. The toppings screamed fresh.
