Valdosta plans more food truck fun

VALDOSTA, Ga. (WALB) - The City of Valdosta is planning to make its next Food Truck Thursday even bigger and better.

Last month, the city hosted the event for the very first time, bringing thousands downtown for food and fun.

The city said its inviting twice as many trucks and planning to adjust the event layout.

City of Valdosta Spokesperson Ashlyn Becton said that they hope to continue growing the event and making it better every month.

“We saw a lot of people walking down the streets, taking pictures in front of the mural, visiting some of our downtown shops, so that’s really the goal, is for people just to have fun in downtown and it just be a fun, planned, easy Thursday night for them and their families," said Becton.

The event is set for Thursday, July 18 at 5:30 p.m.

It will take place near the corner of Lee Street and Central Avenue, across from Valdosta City Hall.

The event is also going to include live music, fun for the kids and will be beach themed.
