The smell of grilled burgers and BBQ filled the air calling you to come and taste. One look around and you started to walk in one direction … then another. Oh wait let’s go check out the Cousins Maine Lobster truck. The line is long so it must be good. After a short while all the lines were long.

Burgers Amore with burger choices galore. Ranchers Smokehouse BBQ for brisket and pulled pork. Salvadorian stuffed pupusa’s and fresh ceviche in San Tan Valley? Why not! Or, food inspired by the classics, but with an all new twist at Chef On the Go. Ah, there’s the taco and burrito truck my staple. Who doesn’t like tacos?

To wash it down there was Grindtime Coffee who is gaining popularity in STV serving great java drinks by the side of the round. And Sno Shack to keep you cool with their flavored shaved ice. I actually was there twice. The tigers blood flavor was awesome and sugar free too.

You can’t go to an event like this and not take home some kettlecorn. Kettle Heroes was on the spot to satisfy your craving for something chewy and sweet.

This event would not be complete without the support of our local heroes. Rural Metro was there with one of their rigs and the kid’s (and adults) were wide-eyed. Give it up for our own Citizens on Patrol (COP) San Tan Valley unit. On hand were Doug Horner, Melissa Blanchard, Mark Goodman, and Dick Stephen with his classic car.

Our District 2 Board of Supervisors Mike Goodman  was there to support this event and answer questions about what’s going on in our community.

Also on hand were the San Tan Valley Chamber folks who put this event on for us. Special thanks to Bryan McCoy, Kim Tillery, and Matt Wilson leading the charge.

Except for the fact that some of the food vendors ran out of food pretty early indicates how well received this event was. Looks like a winner and will repeat itself on the first Saturday of every month.

Let us know how your experience was.
