Zionsville Boy Scout Troop 804 and the Zionsville American Legion have partnered to create Foodie Fridays to benefit both organizations.
“We’re trying to make it a community-based event with food trucks and family friendly activities,” Troop 804 Scoutmaster Greg Hoyes said.
The event is from 5 to 9 p.m. on the third Friday of the month at the Zionsville American Legion, 9950 E 600 S.
“We modeled this event after the First Friday food truck event down in Indianapolis,” Hoyes said.
Games include corn hole, ladder ball, ring toss, washer toss and bubbles for smaller children.
Food trucks include Groovy Guys Fries, Wild Boar BBQ, Pi Indy and the Pink Walrus.
The cost is $5 to attend. Kids 12 and younger are admitted free. Food is an additional cost. Bring cash for entrance fee and drinks. Food trucks accept credit and debit cards.
“It’s an admission fee to cover the event, and then you buy the food from the food truck,” Hoyes said.
Funds raised go toward the operating costs for Troop 804 and the Zionsville American Legion.
“The funds will go toward things the troop needs, like a new trailer, equipment, tents, stoves, things like that,” Hoyes said.
The event will happen rain or shine. Hoyes wants to grow the event in the future.
“If it continues to grow, we’d like to have live music. At this point, the first two months will be all the same food trucks, but then we’re going to have some rotation in July, August and September,” he said.
Parking is available at Zionsville American Legion, with overflow parking available at Christ Lutheran Church.
