Staff pick: Ohio Food Truck Festival

From the August 23, 2012 edition

The food truck festival that packed Columbus Commons earlier this summer is making a two-day stop at the Ohio History Center this weekend. With a little more room to spread out, the festival is raising the ante on fun. Silent Disco, anyone?

Yes, Silent Disco — a dance party populated with people who can hear the music (through earphones) while everyone around them hears … nothing. We love this on so many levels: People get to jam out to awesome music while leaving everyone else undisturbed. And for nonparticipants, there’s a great weird factor in watching people dance in silence.

But this is a food truck festival! Organizers are expecting about 50 trucks to participate. Beer vendors will help you wash down all that good food.
