Tens of thousands of people descended on Waco, Texas, this weekend.
No, it wasn't hordes of Baylor supporters eager to see their beloved Bears triumph in some sporting event. Nor was it fans of Chip and Joanna Gaines attending a special event at their famed Magnolia Market.
The whole thing had to do with food—from trucks.
The Texas Food Truck Showdown featured about 40 trucks with food from all over Texas and the Southwest.
Whatever you wanted was on offer: Barbecue, pizza, Cajun, burgers, Mexican, doughnuts, Chinese, Middle Eastern—even wild game.
This was the fifth year for the downtown food truck extravaganza, which is put on by the Greater Waco Chamber of Commerce. And from all accounts it was a raging success.
So much so it makes us wonder: Why Waco? Why not Texarkana?
The obvious answer is they thought of it, worked to make it happen, and we didn't. For whatever reason.
We have some fun events every year in Downtown Texarkana and around the city. But there is always room for more. There is always room for a unique idea and a group of folks willing to do what it takes to make it happen.
Something to think about.
