FOODIES VOTE WITH THEIR FEET

Food Truck Friday sells out

MORE than 10,000 people packed Blacktown’s Village Square for the first “Food Truck Friday” event.

Formally known as Blacktown Night Markets, the first Food Truck Friday drew a huge and popular response from residents and local shopkeepers.

It will now become a regular event until the end of 2016.

“Blacktown residents obviously voted with their feet and their stomachs,” said Blacktown City Mayor, Stephen Bali

“All but three of the 43 food trucks sold out completely, which proves the idea was a success.

“I want to thank both the organisers and the council staff who made it happen for their hard work getting the event off the ground.”

Mayor Bali said the Food Truck Friday is part of a wider council plan to revitalise the Blacktown CBD.

“For some time we have been working on plans to bring Blacktown alive,” he said.

Local pizza shop owner Vince Vumbaca from Renee’s Pizza said he was eagerly anticipating next week’s event.

“We had one of our best nights ever on Friday,” he said. “The food trucks brought thousands of hungry people into the CBD and we were flat out keeping up with the demand.

“I am really looking forward to this Friday and we definitely want the night markets to continue if the first one is any guide,” he said.

Mayor Bali said the huge turnout proves that with the right mix of attractions, Blacktown City Council can be a vibrant, family friendly place.

“The best part of the night for me was to be able to wander through the Village Square and watch families out for the night enjoying the city.”

The Friday night event will continue until the end of December, when a decision will be made about whether to continue into the next year, Mayor Bali said.
