Hungry Boiseans looking for the next Food Truck Rally will have to find their favorite food carts elsewhere. According to a Facebook announcement from organizers, the February rally is canceled.
Event coordinator Sheila Francis said a February rally was in the works for the regularly scheduled second Saturday of the month, but it was canceled over concerns that crowds wouldn't brave the cold.
"It's ultimately about the turnout for the trucks," said Francis. "With the cold weather, it's harder to hold a rally."
While January also came and went without a rally, because of single-digit temperatures that caused frigid grills and finicky motors, Francis said a rally will take place next month during Treefort Music Fest, Thursday, March 21-Sunday, March 24, in downtown Boise.
"We're partnering with Treefort and we'll be located around the festival, but it'll be open to the public—you won't need a wrist band," said Francis.
The list of participating food trucks has yet to be finalized, Francis said, but will be released prior to the festival in early March.
Sorry folks but the rally isn't going to happen in Feb but look for us at Treefort Music Festival in March!
