|(Seguin) -- The trucks will be rolling in again for Seguin's second annual Food Truck Festival. Whether it's lunch, dinner or just an afternoon snack, the windows of several trucks will be open and ready to take your order in the Hermann Sons Life (Hall) parking lot. The annual event which also includes shopping, craft beers and live music, will be held this Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. |
Paul Gescheidle, one of the coordinators of the event and a lifetime member of the organization, says after a successful event this past fall, the group couldn't wait to host another festival.
"We had a huge turnout last time. This time, we're expecting to have an even bigger crowd. The weather, we're not really worried about it because it's going to happen rain or shine. We'll have plenty of vendors inside this time. The last time, we had more outside vendors and we are going to have those guys. If the rain doesn't stop and doesn't let up, we'll move as many as we can inside and of course, we have seating inside for drinking beers and eating as well as shopping so the rain won't be a worry," said Gescheidle.
Gescheidle says the food trucks and beer vendors are especially excited about traveling in and serving up a great tasty combination.
"For this festival what we are doing is two different beers and both of them are from the Seguin area. Last time, we had Seguin Brewing and we had Boerne Brewing. This time, we are doing two exclusive Seguin area beers, Seguin Brewing and BS Brewing. We'll also have about 20 or so vendors inside with handmade goods just like last time. We'll have the bacon fudge from O'Fudge! as well. We're going to have a new food truck that was not there last time, Grouchy Mamas which is one of our favorites which we kind of brought in for this event because they were unable to attend last time but we will have the pizza again (Goldstone Pizza). We will have Mister Softee and the delicious ice cream. We will have Dona Kikas (Tacos and) Gorditas and Sticky C's (Seafood, Cajun) seafood as well which flew off. They were done by 2 o'clock. So they are well prepared for this event," said Gescheidle.
All proceeds from food truck parking and vendors will continue to go to help repair the Seguin Herman Son's Hall which is part of a fraternal benefit (insurance) community/society. He says the money will go directly into its local building fund.
The Food Truck Festival is free. The Hermann Sons parking lot is located at 2918 W. Kingsbury St.
