The Castle Pines Chamber of Commerce held its 9th annual Food Truck Frenzy at Coyote Ridge Park in the City of Castle Pines. More than 2,000 people descended on the park, with cars lined up all the way back to Monarch Boulevard. Community members with kids and dogs in tow walked to enjoy the eight food trucks and dance to tunes playde by ‘70s and ‘80s cover band, Looking Back.
A fun kid zone offered a climbing wall, bounce house, slide, rock climbing wall, as well as a pet corner – there was a little something for everyone. Food options covered the gambit with everything from comfort food to walking tacos and snowy churros for dessert. With 31 booths set up, Chamber members were able to showcase their businesses throughout the venue.
“Our Chamber members were very happy with the opportunity to market their businesses and services to so many potential clients and customers,” stated Tina Hansen, executive director for the Chamber.
“We were so thankful to be able to hold Food Truck Frenzy after having to cancel it last year, and we would like to thank our members and the community for helping to make it such a success. We were so thrilled to offer a community event while also making it possible for our members to promote their businesses. It’s win-win for the Chamber!” Hansen exclaimed.
Food Truck Frenzy began as a small community food truck event in 2013 and has grown in scope and size each year. “Next year we are excited to celebrate the event’s 10th anniversary,” said Hansen.
