The Vendy Awards are time when people come together to eat and drink amazing culinary delights prepared by the cities finest food trucks. After you sample everything, you vote! Just my kind of event. They are hosted and originated by the non-profit Street Vendor Project in New York city, and their success has spread nationwide. This was Philadelphia’s third awards, and I finally got to be apart of it! This year, it took place in scenic Penn Treaty Park.

10Even though lines were long, it was all worth the wait!

3Deep fried cheese curds from The Cow and the Curd were outstanding gooey crunchy morsels.

5Nothing like a sweaty can of beer to pair with all this food on a hot day.

6Cupcakes from Cupcake Carnival, Falafel from the Falafel King and Garlic Parmesan Tots from the Tot truck

2I got a delicious braised meatball from Foo, but it was their truck art that impressed me most.

4KAMI noodles and Korean style cheesesteak were my personal favorite of the day

7Macarons from Sugar Philly

8The sun finally came out!
