The first ever Food Truck Festival will take over the Liberty Bank Alton Amphitheater this evening.   Sauce Magazine is sponsoring the event and is bringing in more than a dozen St. Louis based food trucks with a wide variety of choices.  The food event is today from 4-8pm and music runs from 4-10pm.
