I just love this festival every year it gets better and better. Even though it is a little damp don't let that stop you. This is a family friendly event. You don't want to miss the food truck competition. I love our local food trucks! It does matter what you are in the mood for they can provide it! Tomorrow will be even better with lots of kids activities! Hope to see you there. The information below is from the City of Killeen website.
