West Little Rock sees its first food truck festival


WEST LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - The weather did not fully cooperate, but organizers in West Little Rock made sure the food was there for people to enjoy.

West Little Rock held its first food truck festival, located at "Chenal Pointe at The Divide."

All of the major mobile eateries made it out, despite the rain. It served as an open house for a major residential complex.

"We decided we wanted to bring a little attention to West Little Rock, and get some folks down on The Divide parkway to see what we have going on," said F. Alan Lee, property manager. "So we have the perfect space for it, we though why not. We'll give it a shot."

Organizers envisioned an annual event, but after today's turnout, they may hold another one in a few months.
