Tastes and smells of ‘Meals Truck Wars’ take over Saskatoon

Saskatoon residents got to try out some different tasty treats in the Riversdale area at the fifth annual Foodtruck Wars Street Festival.

The festival brings together 25 food vendors, bringing lots of different types of food to the city each year.

Festival organizers estimate that thousands of people have already taken part in the event.

“Last year we moved down to Riversdale, we took over three and a half blocks, and we estimated 25,000 plus,” said Rick Mah, an organizer with the festival. “We could have even hit 25,000 [on Friday] alone, that’s how crazy the crowds were.”

The annual gathering gives food trucks a unique opportunity to be the centre of attention, which Michael Belt of Alpha dog waffles said is a nice change.

“As a food truck it’s always nice to have an event that’s actually about us, as opposed to just being the afterthought for all the other festivals,” said Belt.

The event is also very dog friendly offering water bowls and mini pools for man’s best friend.

Food Truck Wars wraps up on Sunday along 20th St. W. between Ave. C and F.
