LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) – Many people and families turned out to Shillito Park for The City of Lexington’s Food Truck Friday event.

There was food from nine different food trucks, desserts, music, games, and more.

Attendees and city leaders said following months of cold weather and pandemic-related guidelines, it felt great to get out in the warm weather and enjoy community events with everyone once again.

“You can see the need that people have to socialize. Families have come out and brought their blankets and have been hanging out. Kids are playing ball, we’ve got the jump houses and everybody is just so excited to be together,” said Whitney Elliott Baxter of the Lexington City Council.

The city estimates close to three thousand people attended the event, they hope to hold a similar event again in the future.
