The Plant City Recreation and Parks Department and Plant City Main Street have collaborated to host the Strawberry Pokéball Food Truck Crawl. Held at McCall Park during the monthly Main Street Food Truck Rally, the new family-friendly event — which anticipates a crowd of several hundred people — is aiming to encourage the exploration of the downtown area.

Alongside an abundance of lure modules, a Pokémon trainer battle will last from 5 to 9 p.m. Prizes are planned for Strongest Trainer (for the person whose Pokémon have the highest Combat Points), Pokémon Master (for the person with the highest number of Pokémon caught) and Gym Leader (for the person in the top slot at the Train Wheel Gazebo Gym at 8 p.m.).

Neighboring businesses will also have lure modules set up and special Poké prizes. For the youngin’s, other Pokémon-themed games and activities will be available.
