You feel that warmth in the air? For foodies, it signifies something deliciously important: the return of food truck season.

Though many of the heartier food truckers kept opening throughout the winter months, spring means that the whole fleet is gearing up to get back out there.

An unofficial start of the season will be marked on Sunday, when the food truckers put on their first Food Trucks at the Fountain meetup since October. The event, which happens on the last Sunday of the month, gathers many of Wichita’s food trucks to serve the masses at the Wichita WaterWalk, 515 S. Main.

Sunday’s event will happen from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. and will feature an interesting newcomer: The owners of Noble House Hawaiian Plate Lunch, a Topeka-based food truck that serves dishes including chicken katsu, teriyaki chicken, pork and cabbage and ahi tuna poke, have decided to drive to Wichita to participate in Sunday’s event.

Other participants: B.S. Sandwich Press, Brickhouse BBQ, Brown Box Bakery, Charlie's Pizza Taco, Funky Monkey Munchies, Hopperoni Express, Kona Ice , Twin Treats Concession, & The Flying Stove.

Attendees also can participate in a 90-minute yoga class starting at 10 a.m. at the corner of Main and Waterman. (It’s free, but a donation is suggested.) And Jenny Wood and The Watchers will perform throughout the event.
