Two Sioux Falls businesses are hosting regular food truck events this year.
Food Truck Tuesdays kicks off tonight, May 16, at Golf Addiction in southwest Sioux Falls, and Fridays on the Plaza starts Friday, May 19, outside KSFY’s new studio downtown.
This is the third year for Food Truck Tuesdays at Golf Addiction, 57th Street and Marion Road. The event is from 5 to 9 p.m. every other Tuesday through Sept. 19.
“It’s growing,” said Adam Scott, co-owner of Golf Addiction. “It’s a wonderful family attraction.”
Backyard Grill, Harry’s Yellow Submarine, Hunny & Bunny and Swamp Daddy’s Cajun Kitchen are expected to be regulars, Scott said. For dessert, event-goers can find treats from Dakota Snow, Ol’ MacDonald’s Kettle Corn and SDSU Ice Cream.
Golf Addiction will sell beer and provide music. This year, ZL Entertainment is sponsoring a free bouncy house for kids, Scott said.
At each event, Dave Larson of Hegg Realtors and John Kosters of Keller Williams Realty Sioux Falls will give out $250 worth of food vouchers to people who stop by the tent and introduce themselves.
Sioux Empire Federal Credit Union also is hosting a “closest to the pin” contest. Each week’s winner is eligible to compete for a grand prize Sept. 19.
KSFY is sponsoring the new weekly Fridays on the Plaza from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. every week. The TV station is inviting food trucks to park along First Avenue at 12th Street. Musicians will be scheduled to play, and the first one on the show bill is Elisabeth Hunstad.
“We just thought it was something fantastic to do for downtown Sioux Falls,” said general manager Jim Berman. “This could be the start of a great tradition.”
