Food truck fab

Luckenbach on Saturday turned into a food truck stop.

The third annual Hill Country Food Truck Festival brought out more than 3,000 hungry revelers, who tasted foods from a dozen trucks and wines from 10 area wineries.

Paid adult attendance was 2,954. That number did not include patrons under age 12, volunteers, sponsor tickets, food truck and winery personnel. The official number was up 1,500 from 2015.

“We are delighted that the third annual event proved to be a winning combination — flavorful cuisine from food trucks, great Texas wine and 10 hours of live Texas music,” said Ernie Loeffler, chairman of the board for the Texas Center for Wine and Culinary Arts.

“We appreciate everyone who came out,” he said. “The funds raised will move us a little closer to our goal of establishing a facility in Fredericksburg which will provide additional educational opportunities in enology, viticulture, culinary and hospitality for high school and college students, as well as for local residents and visitors.”
