It may have rained on southern Vancouver Island, but that didn’t stop hundreds of people from coming out to the first annual Langford Fall Food Truck Festival this weekend.
Despite the heavy rain on Sunday, people came out to Langford Station, grabbed a bite to eat from the various food trucks on site, got their faces painted, got a balloon animal made, and checked out some impressive pumpkin carvings and live music.
The Victoria Beer Society also hosted a beer garden that featured mulled wine, hot apple cider, and local beers.
Sammy Paulus, an organizer with the City of Langford, said the turnout was fantastic and is looking forward to next year’s festival.
“It has been a great turnout. We got ten plus, I want to say 12 trucks total,” said Paulus, adding. “The beer society is here and they made mulled wine, which was a huge hit. Next year they’re going to make way more of it and we’re just going to grow it, it’s going to be great.”
The two-day festival featured live performances by The Bankes Brothers, Noah and the Flood, Skyla J and Oz, Dj Mike Devlin, and Dj Bonnie Takahashi.
It also served as a food drive for the Goldstream Food Bank, with donations going to help local families in need.
