City Launching New Friday Feature
Prince George, B.C.- Remember the food trucks at Canada Games Plaza during the Winter Games? Well the City of Prince George is looking to bring back that atmosphere by having “Foodie Fridays”.
Starting one week from today, (Aug. 5th) and on each Friday till September 30th, the space in front of City Hall will be made available to local food trucks and vendors from 11:00am to 2:00pm.
“I have always said that the area in front of City Hall is the best front yard in the city” says Mayor Lyn Hall, “Foodie Fridays helps to make use of that, and gives the thousands of people who work in the downtown area a pleasant, social, outdoor place to go for a casual lunch.”
A few of the local food trucks and vendors who have already signed up include the Frozen Paddle, Spicy Greens, Shiraz Café and Restaurant, and Smokehouse on the Run.
“I am very happy that the City of Prince George is undertaking this new initiative because it is a chance to show off the diversity of Prince George’s downtown and I encourage all businesses to support it,” says Reza Akbari, owner of Shiraz Café and Restaurant “As a restaurant owner, I embrace this as a new opportunity to advance my own business, meet new customers, and help to revitalize Prince George’s downtown and make it more walkable, vibrant, and fun!”
Restaurants and food vendors who are interested in participating in Foodie Fridays are encouraged to contact Deanna Wasnik, Manager of Development Services, at 250.561.7688 or by emailing email@example.com.
