Seasonal Special Happenings

Food Truck Challenge

When: Sat., Oct. 17 2015

The Westlake outdoor mall is investing in the meals-on-wheels fad by hosting its first Food Truck Challenge, a food fest Crocker Park hopes will become a monthly must-go. With 25 unique vendors lining up around the mall, the festival boasts more trucks than any of the summer's similar shindigs. Diners can expect to see some mobile munchie veterans like Barrio and Fired Up Pizza as well as the punny Wok n Roll, Wholly Frijoles and Betty's Bomb A** Burgers. The eclectic group of eateries will pull up at 11 a.m. today and stay for Challenge-goers until 4 p.m. During the day, diners can vote on their favorite dishes while five judges sample all 25 trucks' eats and decide on an overall champion. Unlike some of Cleveland's other food challenges, this festival's panel of judges isn't composed of celebrity chefs or talk show personalities. Instead, Crocker Park hosted a Facebook contest to choose five regular Joes to test out the area's hippest restaurants. Free. (Brittany Rees)
