Food trucks rally in Penticton this weekend

Food trucks from around the Okanagan Valley will host their first rally of the season at Skaha Ford this weekend.

“There is a big event happening at Skaha Ford and so we decided to piggy back on it. Most of the vendor trucks don’t open until April usually, but we wanted to get started so we have a couple of trucks joining us,” said Ian Lockett, co-owner of Surf Side California.

Surf Side serves up southern west-coast inspired dishes including shrimp and fish tacos. Joining them will be two other trucks including Gung ho Gyoza which have perfected two recipes, pork/beef and vegetarian, along with delicious sauce. They also serve burgers, pulled pork and roast beef sandwiches and other items. Jamptee’s Thai Kitchen, from Oliver, will also be at the rally.

The Food Truck Culture rally takes place from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday in the parking lot of Skaha Ford in Penticton.
