Squamish Valley Music Festival: Food Truck Tasting Tour 2014
Who doesn't love food trucks? With their bold, colourful signage and wonderfully tasty offerings, food trucks are reflective of each of their owner's individual style and personality. Plus, it's a given that if there's a type food you love, there's a food truck out there just waiting to serve it you. It comes as no surprise that there are dozens of food trucks scattered throughout this year's Squamish Valley Music Festival.
On the SVMF official opening day, we took the opportunity to chat with some of the festival food truck owners to find out more about their most popular meal and how much it costs.
We may or may not have also eaten some pretty delicious food.
