The days are getting longer and the sun has finally come out to play. As we start to see restaurant patios and recreational programs across the tri-cities reopen this summer, let’s not forget about our local food truck vendors!
Many of these local businesses rely on large outdoor events and gatherings throughout the summer season to stay profitable. Luckily, the Facebook page, KW Food Trucks, has made it easier for us to find where our favourite food trucks are parked daily. If you don’t know much about the local food truck scene, don’t worry! We have compiled a list below with direct links to their websites and a brief explanation of their menus. Skim through our list to find something that suits your taste buds – there will be no shortage of delicious food in the KW Region this summer!
