If you love food trucks, you'll have a chance to enjoy them on two occasions right in the neighborhood next month.
The Westchase Dads Club and Westchase Community Association will welcome a variety of food trucks to the neighborhood on June 2 and June 8, respectively.
The Dads Club Mini Golf Challenge and Food Truck Rally will take place at beginning at 10 a.m. on June 2.
The event will feature mini-golf challenges and costs $10 to enter for the games. Food trucks cost are seperate. The trucks on site will include Tasty Stacy's, Keep'n it Real, American Wiener, Wicked 'Wiches and Whatever Pops will be available for hungry golfers from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
"I hope people take away the thought that having a great time and supporting the school and community can be one and the same," said Eric Holt, organizer and Westchase Dads Club member. "Being engaged is important, but it can be easy as well."
Holt said the Dad's Club got its idea to add food trucks after the successful food truck rally held by Robinson High School student Ben Weiner and the Westchase Community Association in March.
Weiner organized the event for a school project. Hundreds of residents showed up for the event held at the West Park Village Swim and Tennis Center.
The community association will host its own food truck rally on June 8 at 6 p.m. WCA community manager Debbie Sainz said the success of the March event prompted them to bring the food trucks back to Westchase.
"It was great and a lot of people loved it," Sainz said.
The June 8 food truck rally will be held before the community's Movie in the Park. The movie begins around sundown at Baybridge Park. The feature will be the 1968 original version of "The Love Bug."
"The concept is good food and a movie," Sainz said.
The June 8 Westchase Community Association food truck rally will include the following trucks: Mr. Empanada, Jimmy Meatballs, Burger Culture, Just Smokin BBQ, Fat Tortillas and Unforgettable Cupcakes.
