Brookhaven City Council is taking a cue from neighboring cities and considering hosting its own weekly food truck events.
Bettie Cagle of Red Bird Events, who has organized concerts and food truck events for Dunwoody and Smyrna, spoke to council members about the logistics of bringing food trucks to Brookhaven.
She suggested holding food trucks each Wednesday in Blackburn Park during the warm months.
“It’s an amazing community event, and helps you brand your city,” Cagle said. “When you bring this event to a park and you bring in a music component, you bring out folks from all demographics to meet each other.”
Mayor J. Max Davis said the one-year anniversary of the vote to create the city of Brookhaven falls on a Wednesday this year.
“We want to have festivals in Brookhaven and want to have something July 31 for Founder’s Day,” Davis said.
“I think it can be very exciting and a great addition to the community,” Cagle said.
