One of the most popular weekly events in the Grand Valley is just about ready to kick into gear and I've got the entire summer schedule for you.

Food Truck Fridays have become wildly popular and will kick off the summer season on May 24th at Grand Junction's Lincoln Park. The event rotates throughout the summer between Grand Junction, Fruita, and Palisade. Most of the Grand Junction dates will be accompanied by a movie in the park, making it a great evening of family fun.

Each week a variety of vendors show up with food to meet any fancy whether it's BBQ, pizza, Mexican, Thai, Italian, seafood - and who knows what. The lineup is different every week. Of course, you can't have Friday night dinner without dessert so the sweet tooth vendors will be there as well.

I'm thinking one reason why Food Truck Fridays are so popular is that moms don't have to cook. It's also a great opportunity for some family time at the end of a busy week.

The Grand Junction events are at Lincon Park, the Fruita events are at Civic Center Park, and in Palisade the event is held at St. Kathryn Cellars/Talon Winery, 785 Elberta Avenue.
