Every food truck rally since has been bigger and better. In just a few months, Coachman Park will host 'The World's Largest Food Truck Rally' of over 200 trucks hailing from all over the country.
It has been five years since the owners of GFT have been back in their hometown of Tampa Bay and they're returning the right way, by making it the biggest rally they've ever curated.
Owners of GFT, Jeremy and Candy Gomez are shooting for 209 trucks to break their personal best record, and Guinness World Records will be on-site to ensure they get it in the books. Saturday, November 30 and Sunday, December 1, the rally will be serving up cuisines from sweet to savory to wrapped in bacon and deep-fried.
Some trucks on the list include Karma Kitchen from Indiana, Cheesecake Guy from New York, Georgia's Rolling Thai and even some local trucks like Hott Mess and Kombucha Tampa. There is guaranteed to be cuisine for any and every diet and craving.
Thankfully, there will be two full days of the rally to chow down and sample a little of everything. With so many options you may be able to avoid lines, or camp out to grab grub that you just can't miss before they roll off back to their home state.
This event is family-friendly, will host live music and a performance by DJ Jake De La Cruz.
There will also be live professional wrestling from Generation Championship Wrestling, so dinner and a show.
You can also snag some adult beverages and stick around for games to burn off a few calories before heading to the next truck.
