Lovers of mobile cuisine will feel like they have reached Nirvana when Meridian Township brings its first-ever food truck rally to the area.
On July 1, 75 food trucks from Michigan and adjacent states will rally at Central Park Drive behind Meridian Mall from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. The township's inaugural food truck rally will welcome purveyors of delicious cuisine such as barbecue, crepes, donuts, tacos, pizza and much more.
The township is working with Generation Entertainment—the holder of the largest food truck rally ever at 125 trucks as documented in the Guinness Book of World Records. Deborah Guthrie, Meridian Township's communications director, says the rally is part celebration, part awareness building, as the township looks to strengthen it's image as a place to live, work and play on the eve of its 175th anniversary.
"I've seen how popular food rallies are," says Guthrie. "I knew that having a food truck rally would put the township on the map and in turn, benefit the community and help celebrate 175 years of history."
Food trucks will come from all over Michigan, as well as from adjacent states. Among some of the local trucks are Daddy's Little Grill, Pie Hole Pizza Truck, Good Bites, From Scratch Comfort CruZine, Fire and Rice, and MI Pops. Sponsors of the rally include The Harkness Law Firm, The Willows and Forsberg Real Estate Company.
The food truck rally is part of Meridian Township's 175th Anniversary Celebration and the annual Celebrate Meridian event. Celebrate Meridian will run from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. in the Meridian Township Municipal Complex and include live music, kids activities, Meridian Heritage Festival, beer and wine tents and fireworks. Parking and admission is free. For more information click here.
