I’ve recovered enough from the food frenzy which can now be referred to as the inaugural OC Foodie Fest, to give you a short recap. As with any inaugural event that is a huge success, it involved long lines, traffic gridlock, some disgruntled attendees, and thousands clamoring for more! A huge shout out to Taco Dawg (@TacoDawg), Ashley Elliott (@AshleyEliott), Justin Moore-Brown (@BigHeadAsian), and Anthony Xavier (@AnythingAnthony) for their tireless efforts in pulling off this mega event.
I think this video by the talented Jonathan Nafarette (@Johnathon360) sums up the energetic vibe emanating from this eating extravaganza held at the Honda Center this past Saturday. You can be sure that this will not be the last OC Foodie Fest!
Congrats to The Lime Truck, Chunk n Chip, and Great Balls on Tires for capturing the hearts, tummies, and votes of the hungry masses to win Yelp’s Best of the Fest’s awards. AND, it really wasn’t ALL about the food, these types of street festivals also give local artists, local musicians, crafters, business and charitable organizations a venue and a way to get the word out. OC Foodie Fest raised over $10,000 for Child Share, Pretend City, and Cart for a Cause. So take a minute to check out what these organizations are all about.
