Scottsdale, Arizona will be host to fast food trucks. Last years event was a total disaster as they anticipated only 5,000 people would show. Instead a whopping 20,000 roared in causing hour-long waits for a 2-dollar entrée. This year they seem to getting more prepared as they now anticipate 20,000 people. I mean when else do you get the opportunity to grab a bite by the curb?
Like an out-of-control house party, last year’s Street Eats Food Truck Festival was so popular that it was a disaster.
The inaugural festival at Salt River Fields was planned in a six-week period that included the holidays. The single-day event was expected to draw about 5,000 people. Organizers charged for parking, and opened only one lot at the complex, which is the spring-training home of the Arizona Diamondbacks. They also sold nearly 8,000 discount tickets through online deal sites.
