It's baaaaack! The Maximus-Minimus food truck will be at the D.I.N.E. event this Saturday at Cheney Stadium.

Get your stretchy pants ready – a mini mobile truck festival is this Saturday.

D.I.N.E. – which stands for Delicious Infield Nosh Extravaganza – will be a smaller festival than its sibling festival the Moveable Feast, which was a Cheney Stadium gathering in July of about 30 food trucks.

D.I.N.E. is a ticketed event – $10 buys you admission (plus the cost of food and beer). The festival will take place in the infield at Cheney, limiting attendance to 2,000. Hours are 5-10 p.m.

Organizer Alyson Jones, who created Moveable Feast with Celebrity Cake Studio owner Odette D’Aniello, said there will be six food trucks at D.I.N.E. – South Sound trucks Celebrity Cake Studio Cakemobile, Choripan, Lumpia World and Burrito Boy. Seattle trucks Maximums/Minimus – the truck shaped like a giant pig – and Where You At, Matt? also will serve. Jones said five breweries serving $5 craft beers – Full Sail, Pyramid, Ninkasi, Harmon and Deschutes – and three live bands will play – Rikk Beatty Band, Matt Brown and Footrace Fiasco.

What about Moveable Feast II? The date has been set – July 28, 2013. Jones intends D.I.N.E. also to be an annual event.
