Cary, NC – It wasn’t that long ago that Town of Cary put on its first Chatham Street Chowdown. This past Sunday saw a return of the popular event with big crowds, lots of food trucks and a smoking band.
The Whisky Runners
I actually went to see the opening band, The Whisky Runners, from 5-7 PM. Good friends, good musicians; they had the crowd singing along to their high-energy twist on rock & roll.
Meanwhile, Back at the Food Truck Rodeo
We found parking easily on Harrison. The decision to move the whole event east of Academy Street was a good one. We hiked across the new brickwork at the corner of Chatham and Academy and entered the fray.
The afternoon was hot but a few clouds and plenty of shade broke up the worst of it. The crowds were large, but not oppressive. Plenty of food trucks to go around.
Chowdowns From Years Past
The first Chatham Street Chowdown was a rainy Sunday in April of 2015. Here’s a look back of a few Chowdowns from years past:
