More food options are planned with the return of the Eats on the Street Friday Night Food Truck Fest, set for Friday, June 24 in downtown Kenton.

Ten food trucks have been confirmed so far, according to organizers with the Kenton Historic Courthouse District Committee (HCD), part of the Hardin County Chamber and Business Alliance.

In the initial event a year ago, five food trucks participated and the fest attracted close to 3,000 people, said Jacqualine Fitzgerald, event creator with the HCD.

The event will take place from 5 to 10 p.m. on Columbus and Main streets within the Kenton HCD.

Also featured will be vintage motorcycle displays, classic car show, live music, craft beer station, photo booth and the “Chairs for Hope” auction supporting Not by Choice Outreach.

In addition, in a joint announcement with Rogers Nationwide Insurance Agency, the event will welcome Dale Earnhart Jr.’s No. 88 NASCAR vehicle. Attendees can see the race car in person and have a chance to win an autographed racing helmet.

“With warm sunny weather, we expect the Eats on the Street event to be bigger and better than last year,” Fitzgerald said. “Last year was exciting to put feet on the street to enjoy a festive time with friends, family and community members, and with less than ideal conditions, we still had over 3,000 people in downtown Kenton.”

Money raised that evening supports the Kenton HCD Committee and its downtown revitalization and beautification efforts.
