Thousands of people milled around Fayetteville Street in downtown Raleigh and stood in line for the fifty-plus participating food trucks that canvassed the surrounding city blocks.

Long lines snaked around local food truck favorites Chirba, Chirba (winner of the Independent Best of the Triangle 2014 for Best Food Truck), The Parlour and Belgian Waffology camped out in City Plaza.

Food trucks for the event came as far away as Wilmington’s Catch the Food Truck serving fresh, Baja-style street food using local seafood and Asheville’s Root Down creole and Southern-inspired comfort food truck.

The sweltering heat made cold and liquid treats popular items. Revelers strolling down Fayetteville Street were seen enjoying SweetWater Ices, Citizen Pops from Citizen Yogurt and fresh-squeezed lemonade from Fahsyrah’s Lemonade stand.

The next rodeo will take place on Sunday, August 10 from 4 p.m. until 9 p.m.
