This weekend if you are looking for food trucks, Downtown Lufkin is the place. The Lufkin CVB and Mainstreet are working together to make this monthly food truck event happen.  They are all going to set up downtown Lufkin this Saturday February 15th, 2020 from 10am - 2pm. I haven't gotten news yet on exactly which food trucks that will be there. I do think it's important to attend, and help foster this type of event in our community.

Enjoy an evening in downtown Lufkin and get your dinner from a food truck! During First StrEAT Feast, food trucks will line the block in front of The Pines Theater, giving guests a chance to taste different treats from some of our favorite Lufkin food trucks! You do not want to miss this one of a kind event. Shopping and eating?! Sounds like a great time! Mark your calendars for the 3rd Saturday of each month to enjoy First StrEAT Feast! Quarterly, First StrEAT Feast will be joined by Main Street Market Days with all kinds of vendors, boutiques, and more! For questions or if you would like to set-up a food truck or be a vendor, call 936-633-0349.

One thing that you don't think of when you are visiting all these local trucks, you are supporting a local business. This money will stay right in your community, usually without any franchise fees, and other overhead that isn't spent here in our local community. So if you think about it, not only are you following your stomach to some good food, you are also following your heart, and helping local businesses.
