LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - If you were looking for lunch at the Main Street Food Truck Festival you had plenty of options to choose from. 60 food trucks line Main St. and Capitol Ave. from 11:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. on Saturday as other festivities happened across downtown Little Rock.
The annual downtown food truck festival had every flavor your taste buds could ask for. From ice cream to burgers to dumplings, food trucks brought out thousands of Arkansans. But organizers brought in more than just food, with the arrival of the famous Budweiser Clydesdales. The horses currently have a temporary stable under the Main Street Bridge in the River Market.
Over at the Dunbar Community Garden another festival was active and promoting "creative potential through sustainability and cruelty-free living." The 4th annual Urban Raw Festival took place at the signature urban garden, teaming up with Solfood Kitchen Co-Op to celebrate locally sourced foods and goods.
"We're celebrating local artisans and the things that they make in the raw," said Kelley Isabutterfly. "So, if it's food, music, jewelry, shea butter, whatever they create this is why we're here to support and to give a platform to the local artisans in Arkansas."
The Urban Raw Festival also showcased two new vegan restaurants in Little Rock; Viva Vegan and Vegans in Paradise.
A few blocks away, Arkansas Peace Week's Peace Fest happened at the Bernice Garden on South Main Street. Peace Fest was the latest event in the week-long celebration that began on Sunday.
Alongside local musicians and crafters, non-profit groups got the word out about their organization's efforts. Peace Week events wrap up tomorrow, including a documentary viewing at the Historic Arkansas Museum focusing on the Central High Nine.
