Mark Your Calendars: Sledding, food truck rodeo planned in Durham

Posted January 12, 2014

Durham Central Park announced this week that its Winter Food Truck Rodeo on Jan. 26 also will include a sledding hill.

Durham parks and recreation will transform the Great Lawn, which is the open green space that climbs the hill between The Leaf and The Skate Park, into a winter wonderland with artificial snow for sledding, according to a press release. There will be a section at the bottom of the hill for younger kids to play, build snow forts and make snow angels.

The rodeo, from noon to 4 p.m., Jan. 26, will gather 40 of the Triangle's most popular food trucks under Durham Central Park's Pavilion and along Foster Street. Among the trucks scheduled to attend: Dusty Donuts, American Meltdown, MaMa Dukes, Pie Pushers, Porchetta, Fosters, Chez Moi Bakery and OnlyBurger.

Fullsteam Brewery will have beer and there will be some live music too.

The Food Truck Rodeo is rain or shine. The snow and sledding will depend on the weather. Durham Central Park is at 501 Foster St. in Durham.

    A food truck rodeo, while it may be good family fun, hardly seems the kind of activity to further Durham's desire to present itself to the world as a center of art and culture.

    Durham tax dollars at work. C'mon, isn't there something better to spend my tax dollars on than artificial snow?
