The food trucks are back in town.

The Greater Vancouver Food Truck Festival is kicking off its 2021 season right here in Chilliwack with a drive-thru event this weekend in the parking lot of the Chilliwack Coliseum.

Eight vendors will be in town Saturday (March 27) and a different set of eight trucks will be here Sunday (March 28).

Vendors will be dishing out everything from barbecued meats and mac-and-cheese to sweets and drinks.
