Food Truck Friday trending up at Lake Lanier Olympic Park

By Alan Hope
If last month’s attendance is any indication, there are lots of folks looking for a different kind of dinner on Friday nights.
Food Truck Friday at Lake Lanier Olympic Park began last summer with just a couple hundred people turning out to see what the event was all about. Last month some 800 filled the tower-side of the park to select dishes from various food trucks and be entertained by a local DJ as well as live music. Temperatures in the mid 70s didn’t hurt attendance, either. 
Robyn Lynch, venue manager, said, “People were excited to be able to enjo​y an afternoon on the lake. Others said that they didn't realize the park was open to the public.” She also said others were surprised there is a courtesy dock, boat ramp, beach, and picnic area available at no charge.

“As we head into summer we’ll be adding the number of food trucks and vendors to accommodate the growing crowds​,” she said.
She said she was pleased with the trend upward in attendance, “We are excited to see so many old friends and new faces enjoying the park.”
The monthly event is scheduled to run through the end of summer.
The next Food Truck Friday will be on May 11 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
