Mobile food season is finally here – and here are two food truck gatherings for your calendar. The first is a new event from Tacoma’s Metro Parks – Food Truck Fest will be July 20 in Wright Park. The second is a returning event, Moveable Feast, now in its third year. That gathering will be Sept. 13 at Cheney Stadium.

Food truck operators – now is the time to get in contact with coordinator Phedra Redifer. She’s booked a handful of trucks, but is on the lookout for more.
