Foodies flock to drive-thru food truck fest in Chilliwack

The Greater Vancouver Food Truck Festival takes place this weekend at Chilliwack Heritage Park

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.
