And this weekend’s highlighted event is Uptown’s Spring Food Truck Festival Saturday from 11:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. edt in Woodruff Park. Twenty-five food trucks will line Dillingham Bridge with a variety of gourmet food! There is a $5 entry fee which goes right back into the community for future Uptown events!
Becca Zajac is Uptown Columbus’ Marketing & Community Relations Vice President and says the family-friendly event has a range of food from Asian to southern flare.
“The fry guy makes these immaculate dishes out of fries or there’s a pizza guy who makes pizza on a stick or something like that. So you think about your normal food but with a really cool culinary twist.”
