Get Ready For the FIRST Food Truck Rally of the Year!

The Jax Food Truck Food Court’s first food truck rally of 2016 is upon us!  Join us on Saturday, January 16th for one of the biggest food truck rallies to date at Academy Sports and Outdoors on Atlantic Boulevard.  The rally will be held from 11 am – 4 pm and portions of the proceeds will benefit The HealthyUNow Foundation for children with autism.  Aside from excellent cuisine for a fantastic cause, there will be bounce houses, face painting, henna tattoos, a cash bar, and a silent auction.  There will also be a Chili Cook-off with a People’s Choice Award!
