You could go to a food truck rally.

Or you could up the ante and go to a haunted food truck rally. Bwahahahahaaaaaaa.

The Wichita Eagle is putting on its second Haunted Food Trucks event the night before Halloween, Oct. 30. It’ll be from 5 to 8 p.m. and will feature eight food trucks set up in our back parking lot, just south of Douglas and Rock Island downtown. And, just like last year, the event will have extra attractions, including trunk-or-treating for the kids and staff members in costumes. Attendees are invited to give their costumes a dress rehearsal, too.

Last year was the first year for our rally, and it was a big success. People crowded into our lot to sample the local delicacies. Some even brought lawn chairs and set up camp.

I’m pretty exited about this year’s lineup, which includes old faithfuls The Flying Stove, B.S. Sandwich Press, Hopperoni Express, Charlie’s Pizza Taco, Funky Monkey Munchies and Brown Box Bakery. We’ll also have two of the newer trucks that I’m eager to try: The Kamayan Truck, which serves lots of roasted pork-based Filipino dishes, and Ms. Tosha’s Chicken, a chicken-wing specialist. And I will ask you to please step aside when I approach The Waffle Wagon. It’s serves caramelized Belgian waffles, only the best dessert ever invented.

Several Wichita Eagle writers will be there and are ready to chat. I’ll be there along with several of my co-workers, including Annie Calovich and Carrie Rengers.

Admission is free. For more information, call 316-268-6327.
