What's up in Lansing: Food Truck Rally

Here's what's going on in town this weekend.


Welcome to July.

Forget the food court, Meridian Mall is serving it up before you even walk through the doors! Meridian Township is celebrating its 17th anniversary with gourmet food trucks in the Meridian Mall parking lot. Breakfast, lunch or brunch, it truly does not matter, because the trucks will be available for a 12-hour window. The trucks are rolling in from all over the state and include multiple pun names like Frackin Hungry, Do Your Wurst Grill and Daddy's Little Grill. Try one or try them all, just be ready for 75 different treats if you choose the latter. In addition to the meals on wheels, this family friendly event lights up the night with fireworks and live music to match the pyrotechnics in your mouth. 11 a.m.-11 p.m. FREE. Meridian Mall, 1982 W. Grand River Ave. Okemos. (517) 853- 4384, www.lansing.org/event/food-truck-rally/13650/.
