Dunwoody Food Truck Thursday's proposed for Brook Run Park to run over a 12 week period this Summer.
Ms. Bettie Cagle of Redbird Events presented an idea to the Dunwoody Homeowners Association on Sunday Night which I believe on the surface has the possibility of becoming a reality. Bettie has experience doing Food Truck events including Smyrna Food Truck Tuesdays & Virginia Highlands Food Truck Wednesdays and proposes a Dunwoody Food Truck Thursdays at Brook Run Park to run over a 12 week period from 6 to 9 pm this Summer.
The event would offer about five or six various food trucks, local entertainment in a park atmosphere at regularly scheduled times and she promises to incorporate the local brick & mortar establishments who already serve the community into the mix. The proposal being discussed is for the DHA to partner with the City as a Special Event whereby the only cost to the city may be a little additional police. In exchange for that overhead, we would have a weekly event happening every Thursday night that would build community and could grow into a wonderful long term event for the city.
Brook Run is a wonderful place to walk off an interesting meal and besides a few musical events as being proposed, imagine if we got the "problematic" stream running through the playground for the little kids to play in, we could throw in a couple "Movie in the Park" nights and then maybe dedicate an evening to have the Mayor show off his skateboard skills during a skate park event.
Watch the video for the full presentation but I think the food could draw us into the park but we would stay for other reasons.
