Tampa, Florida -- On Saturday, March 29, the Florida State Fairgrounds will host the World's Largest Food Truck Festival Ever and try to officially break the Guinness World Record for Largest Food Truck Parade.

Admission to the event, which will be held from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., is free and parking is $6 per vehicle. Gates will open to the public at noon with a total of 14 bands including 3D Burn, Drastic Fall, Carlisle and Variance, courtesy of musical sponsor 98 Rock.

Activity areas include a Kid's Play Zone with bounce houses, pony rides, a petting zoo and kiddie rides. Adult thrill rides and games include bumper cars, a giant wheel, the RC48 roller coaster and mobile gaming trucks.

This year's event is expecting over 200 food trucks from around the U.S. and the state of Florida. Last year, the festival broke the record for the largest food truck parade with 100 trucks participating, so this year an official Guinness World Record Adjudicator will be at the event to verify the accomplishment -- if it happens.

Patrons can also vote for their favorite food truck and the top three will be presented with People's Choice Awards on Sunday.

The festival is still accepting food truck and vendor applications.  For more information about the event, contact Jennifer O'Brien, Marketing and Communications Manager at Jennifer.OBrien@freshfromflorida.com or 813-627-431.
