National Food Truck Day will be full of fun activities, live music, and great food.

Planning to stay for the duration of the event? Make sure to pack a few essentials with you before you go. While The Yard does have several picnic tables and seating options, it's an excellent idea to bring a lawn chair or two just in case the tables fill up. Plus, lawn chairs will give you plenty of room to find the best spot for viewing the performance from the band. Don't want to carry around a lawn chair? Opt for a light picnic blanket that your and your group can lounge on. With the Summer weather in full swing, you can expect temperatures to be hot. Make sure to pack lots of water to stay hydrated as you enjoy some fun in the sun and outdoor activities.
