Foodie Fridays Return
Prince George, B.C. – Four food vendors will help kick off “Foodie Fridays” at Veterans Plaza in front of City Hall today.
Jen Tkachuk, the City’s civic events coordinator, says Spicy Greens, The White Goose Bistro, Frozen Paddle and the Tropical Moose have all signed up for week one which will feature an outdoor food concept.
“So, not only food trucks but food vendors with tents. It’s a little bit of a different opportunity than the normal food truck scene because you do have an opportunity to get served from local restaurants who don’t necessarily have a truck. It expands who’s able to participate.”
She says, “Foodie Fridays” will run every Friday from today until August 25 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and will include a range of food options each week. It’s a bit of a change from last year when it ran in August and September.
“We had quite a bit of rain in September last year so we shifted this year’s program from June to August. So, hopefully we get lots of sunshine and beautiful days to be able to eat outside.”
The City says the inspiration behind “Foodie Fridays” is to help provide a boost downtown, to support business, and to provide a space for locals to enjoy food outside.
