Leaders of the Dunwoody Homeowners Association plan to restart food truck events at Brook Run Park next April.

The DHA sponsored 22 Food Truck Thursdays in Brook Run this year and the events were succesful, DHA secretary Bill Grossman told members of the DHA board of directors on Nov. 3. The events began in the spring and ended in October.

The events included food trucks and musical performances and attracted 500 to 1,500 people each, he said.

“Things went exceptionally smoothly because of the demographics of who showed up,” Grossman said. “I was expecting more ‘millennials,’ but we got more families.”

Grossman said he hoped to find a corporate sponsor next year for the events  in order to hire more established musicians.

The events drew strong support from DHA board members and city officials attending the Nov. 3 meeting. “That program has been the best thing ever,” Dunwoody City Councilman Doug Thompson said. “Everybody was happy. It didn’t matter whether you were 4 or 84, you had something to do.”
