Relay plans food truck festival

By Kitsey Burns Harrison -

Organizers with Yadkin County Relay for Life have planned a fundraising event for July 29 which will feature local vendors and food trucks. The Yadkin Valley Food Truck and Vendors Festival will be held from noon to 8 p.m. in downtown Yadkinville at the Elm Street parking lot.

In addition to vendors and food trucks, including BJ’s Fry Shack and Cameron’s Funnel Cakes, the Yadkin Valley Cruisers will be there displaying classic cars. There will be music and lots of fun for the whole family, said organizer Paula Casstevens.

This is the first event of its kind for Yadkin Relay for Life, but organizers hope it will become an annual tradition.

The main Relay for Life event took place in May, but teams raise funds all throughout the year and have until August to reach their final goal. Relay for Life is the title fundraising event benefiting the American Cancer Society.

Casstevens said she hopes community members will come out on July 29 to support the fight against cancer in Yadkin County.
