The Alton Food Truck Festival returns for a second year next weekend. Offering a wide variety of popular food from around the St. Louis area, the Liberty Bank Alton Amphitheater will again be the venue for the event sponsored by Sauce Magazine.

Last year's inaugural event saw many trucks run out of food due to the larger than anticipated crowds.  Alton Park & Recreation Director Mike Haynes tells The Big Z about they anticipate a bigger food truck festival this time around.

The event will take place Saturday August 27th at the Amphitheater where the food trucks will provide their products for purchase from 4-8pm.  St. Louis dance band Boogie Chyld will play on the amphitheater stage during the event.  Admission to the grounds is free.
