Families and college students milled around Rosemary Street on Sunday, enjoying an array of food trucks at the second annual Rodeo on Rosemary.
The event took place from 12-4 p.m. Two blocks were reserved for the event with police cars guarding each end.
Chapel Hill Police Officer Phillip Smith said the police were responsible for the safety and the traffic control of the event. In light of recent terrorist attacks involving automobiles, the police department placed additional vehicles such as fire trucks to act as barriers. The department also increased police presence at the rodeo.
The festival was organized through a collaboration between Chapel Hill Parks and Recreation, Downtown Partnership and the Raleigh Durham Mobile Food Association (RDUMFA). The top of Wallace Parking Deck was used as an eating space and provided additional entertainment such as miniature golf and performances.
Food Trucks available included Cousin’s Maine Lobster, Bandidos, Chirba Chirba, Belgian Waffle Crafters, Captain Cookie and the Milk Man, Holy Mole, BO's kitchen, Morfa Empanadas, Dusty Donuts, Medley, Hot Chix Hotcakes and Chicken, JAM Ice Cream, Inc. Baguettaboutit and CockadoodleMoo.
