VINCENNES, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV)– “Food Trucks on the Wabash” returned at the Riverwalk in Vincennes for its sixth year on Monday, bringing over a dozen food trucks to the community.
Co-founder Brian Grove said he was eager to start their year– as he has seen this event grow over time.
“Monday nights, a lot of restaurants were closed, and we saw it as a gathering point. We love the Riverwalk, we live in this district,” Grove, also a city council member, said. “We’re constantly looking for new ways to improve the quality of life for Vincennes.”
There was also live music present on Monday. It kicks off their 2023 schedule, which will run through September. Grove said his favorite part was watching more and more community members become involved.
“The sense of community that you get is definitely our number one priority,” he said. “When you come down, you don’t just see people eating, you see people gathering and laughing, enjoying the evening and time together.”
Grove said they usually average about 10-14 trucks, but that varies week to week. They will post a lineup ahead of time on their Facebook Page, which will also post any cancellations due to weather.
