Over 500 people braved the 95+ degree temperature to partake in the offerings at the first event Chow Down in Brownstown – Food Truck Rally at the Greater Detroit Auto Auction in Brownstown on Wednesday, June 20th.

The Brownstown DDA along with the Michigan Mobile Food Vendor Association and the Greater Detroit Auto Auction worked together to bring this event to Brownstown.  It was well received by the hunger patrons.  One of the favorites were the burritos from El Guapo Grill

and the Travel Piggy sandwich from Ned’s TravelBurgers.  Co-owner Scott Steigerwald said, “

The event was awesome and we can’t wait to come back to Brownstown!”

The children in attendance enjoyed the face-painting by Rebecca Lowe along with the ice cream treats provided by Treat Dreams.  To further the enjoyment of the evening, music was provided by The Incredibles. 

Jeff Karpinski of the Greater Detroit Auto Auction was pleased with the turnout, too and was happy that so many customers from the Food Truck Rally visited the auction.

Sue Trussell, Brownstown Township Assistant DDA Director said, “The Food Truck Rally was a great success.  We will continue to plan events such as this to showcase our community. I am pleased that we got such a wonderful response.”
