In 2013, attendees of City of Water Day were able to sample a delicious variety of food from trucks and carts, incuding Vendy Award-winning food vendors!
We encourage you to bring water (there will be some water available from vendors, but it's always good to bring a bottle of your own), and cash (for buying food and merchandise).
