All guests were presented with an exclusive tasting passport to gain access to over 20 of the city’s favorite and highly sought-after food trucks. The Choice Streets passport allowed guests one (1) sample from each food truck and were stamped as they sample at each truck. Alcoholic beverages were unlimited for all guests.
