Hundreds pack Food Truck Rodeo in Durham

Posted: Updated:
DURHAM, N.C. -

More than 60 food trucks lined the streets of Durham's Central Park on Sunday for the annual Labor Day extravaganza in the heart of the city.

Hundreds of people came to the event despite a brief rain and steamy conditions.

The Mudbones Blues Review performed as revelers headed for shade to listen while munching on barbecue, tacos, hamburgers and a wide variety of foods from the food trucks.

The event bills itself as the "original Food Truck Rodeo" of the Triangle, and food truck events have picked up steam in the area. The events have the feel of an old-fashioned county fair mixed with modern cuisine and are highly popular with young singles and families. Local breweries were also on hand to sell beer.

The next food truck rodeo at Durham's Central Park is Nov. 17, from 12:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Downtown Raleigh has a Food Truck Rodeo scheduled for Oct. 13, from noon to 5 p.m. The last one in Raleigh, on Aug. 11, had more than 70 food trucks.
