Downtown Syracuse will be taken over by food trucks on Thursday as seven vendors participate in the first ever Food Truck Rodeo. YNN's Brad Vivacqua has more on the battle of the food trucks.
SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- The corner of South Salina Street and West Fayette Street used to be called the Central Transfer Center. Now, officials are trying to gather input about how the space could be used since the bus station is no longer there.
On Thursday, the Syracuse-Onondaga County Planning Agency has invited seven food truck vendors to participate in the Food Truck Rodeo.
The Stir Mobile Eatery is just one of the vendors participating in the event. The truck features falaffel, sandwiches, and specialty fries.
The truck has been in operation since April, and the co-owners believe the Food Truck Rodeo is great opportunity for both their business and the city of Syracuse.
"I think downtown would be a great location, if they had certain spots set up for food trucks, maybe so we're not all on top of each other. But, I think it's definitely something for people to get out of the office and just walk up and get some good fresh street food," said David Marnell, co-owner.
Anyone is encouraged to head to the rodeo and provide input via Twitter and Facebook. Tweet to @parkpotential, or head to the agency's Facebook page to share your ideas about what to do with the location.
