Thousands of people attended the Spring Garden Food Truck Festival on Sunday evening. Many more will get a chance to sample what the trucks have to offer during October and November. The City of Greensboro is allowing them in downtown for the first time -- in a green space on Commerce Place.
"We really want to be downtown," Sam Shumaker said. He's one of the co-owners of The Great Escape food truck, which serves noodles and crepes. "We think it's silly not to have food trucks down there. We think it would bring more business to downtown Greensboro, not take away from business that's already going there."
