Foodie Fri­days ex­tended to next week

The Prince George Citizen - - Local - Ci­ti­zen staff

The Foodie Fri­days run has been ex­tended by two events.

The mid­day com­bi­na­tion of lo­cal food trucks, street ven­dors, and live mu­sic will be held this Fri­day and next at Wood In­no­va­tion Square down­town.

The White Goose Bistro, Smokey J’s, North City Don­air and Spicy Greens are con­firmed for both days and the Frozen Pad­dle will be serv­ing ice cream at the park on Sept. 20. As it stands, the event has been more pop­u­lar than ever, ac­cord­ing to city hall.

Av­er­age daily at­ten­dance has been 563 peo­ple com­pared with 486 in 2018, and 425 in 2017.

“The extension of Foodie Fri­days was driven by the par­tic­i­pat­ing food ven­dors sim­ply not want­ing the event to end for the sea­son, and the num­bers in­di­cate that nei­ther does the pub­lic,” said civic events co­or­di­na­tor Jen Rubadeau.

Food truck op­er­a­tors, restau­rant op­er­a­tors, or li­censed food ven­dors in­ter­ested in par­tic­i­pat­ing can con­tact Rubadeau at 250-6147880 or [email protected]­ge­orge.ca.
