The Rodeo on Rosemary, a partnership between Chapel Hill Parks and Recreation Department, Chapel Hill Downtown Partnership and the Raleigh-Durham Mobile Food Association, will take place Sunday from noon to 5 p.m.
Meg McGurk, executive director of the Chapel Hill Downtown Partnership, said that with Rosemary’s new colorful crosswalks and the work done on the sidewalks, it seemed like a good opportunity to test out an event on Rosemary since most street events are on Franklin Street.
“Myself and Amanda Fletcher, the town special events coordinator, started talking about the possibility of doing this,” McGurk said. “It’s something that the community has talked about and food trucks have wanted to do — they’re very popular.”
Tony Sustaita, owner of Bandido’s Mexican Cafe and food truck, said all of the trucks coming to the rodeo are members of the RDU Mobile Food Association. He said McGurk asked him to participate, and he then helped to recruit other trucks from the association.
