Showcasing the arts through Gallery Strolls and crowd-sourced creative projects has been part of the collaborative creative sector’s approach all along. Food trucks, though, brought a fresh surprise.
“The interest we’ve seen in the food trucks pop-up sort of blew me away,” said Sewake. More of them, like the ones from Rocky’s NY Style Hot Dogs, Maria’s Kusina, and Libbey’s Meat Market, took part in Final Friday street fairs. “Railroad Street doesn’t have the dining capacity [for the Final Friday events] without the food trucks,” she explained.
