People are lining up for a food truck festival in Chilliwack this weekend, but instead of standing in line to get their meals, people were waiting in their cars.
The drive-thru version of the Greater Vancouver Food Truck Festival is at Chilliwack Heritage Park July 11 and 12. The new drive-thru series started a month ago.
Chilliwack is where the first Greater Vancouver Food Truck Festival was held back in 2014, then called the Fraser Valley Food Truck Festival.

On Saturday there’s: Reel Mac and Cheese, Lenny’s Lemons (local), Tin Lizzy Concessions – Mini Donuts, Rocky Point Ice Cream, Saltspring Noodle Bar, Ford Concessions Inc. – Steve O’s Fried Chicken (local), and Next Gen. Concessions Inc. – Street Dogs (dogs, fries, poutine).
