With skies so blue and a menu so packed with delicious fall fare, yesterday’s Fall Block Party at One Arts Plaza was part cook-off, part costume party, part fall showcase drawing participation from Screen Door, Jorge’s, Spiceman’s FM1410, Gro Designs, Picolos Texas Gourmet Pickles, Missing Q Press, Tei An, Roundrock Honey, Fedora, Niigata Sake, and more.

Down the street, food trucks lined up in front of The Crow Center, proving again that “if you park it, they will come.”

And down the street…

Hundreds of adventurous eaters lined up to order from the Yum Yum, Hot Box, City Street, and Korean BBQ food trucks.
