Columbia StrEAT Food Truck Fest 2014

Yesterday Columbia Street in New Westminster was the second annual Food Truck Fest. Last year there were 15 trucks and they expected 10,000 people and 20,000 showed up.

This year 50 trucks were invited. They closed Columbia Street from 6th Street to McBride. This first picture is from top of Columbia looking down towards 6th Street.

My friend Rita and I arrived shortly after the event started at 4 p.m. On this warm sunny Saturday.

Down the centre of Columbia street tables and chairs were set up for dining. There were also three beer gardens to enjoy.

Rita and I decided on trying out one of the several BBQ trucks she had beef brisket and I had a pulled pork sandwich. We headed over to one of the beer gardens and joined a couple at their table. Later another friend of Rita's and her husband joined us.

Some of the graphics on the trucks were amazing. Lots of families and dining of all styles were available to choose from.

Vij's Curry Art in Motion was a very busy place. Maybe next time, one of the couples had a dish for there that looked great.

Turkey Sandwich aka Strutter is finished!

A closer look at the long feather buttonhole stitch I did.

Another pincushion stitched, I may make it into a little quilt.

A redesigned Buggy Barn pincushion, I may make it into a needle case.

They were very generous with their fabrics, I still have an equal size piece of fabric for a backing.

Another Buggy Barn pincushion this one is on velvet and will also be redesigned. I may make a small pincushion with the left over fabric.

Again very generous with the velvet and a backing also supplied.

I am loving all the wool felt stitching. Having all those food trucks to choose from must have been fun and great eating.
