Tampa food truck rally sets Guinness World Record

in Uncategorized by

The World’s Largest Food Truck Rally lived up to its name Saturday when it set a new Guinness World Record for holding the largest food truck parade, organizers said.

More than 121 food trucks lined up at the Florida State Fairgrounds for the official Guinness count, shattering the old record of 62 trucks set in Miami last year, said Jennifer O’Brien, a Florida State Fair Authority spokeswoman. About 170 trucks participated in the Generation Food Truck event, but only trucks with photographs of food on them were included in the official number.

The event continues Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. with bands, a kids’ play zone and adult thrill rides and games.
