The Midwest’s Premiere Food Truck Festival is Back
The much anticipated summer foodie event, the Columbus Food Truck Festival, is back for year 9 and is serving up delicious fun for all ages on the Scioto Mile. According to festival organizers Mike Gallicchio and Chas Kaplan, “The move to the Scioto Mile in enabled us to enhance the layout of the festival.
