We’ve mentioned previously that despite food trucks not (yet) being allowed to operate on a daily basis here in the Inland Empire, there seems to be a food truck event nearly every weekend here.

This weekend brings an event just outside the Inland Empire.

Damien High School, 2280 Damien Ave., La Verne, is hosting its first food truck festival from noon to 6 p.m. on Sunday (April 29).

A flier advertises DJs, live bands, a kids’ zone and 18 trucks, including the I.E.’s Suite 106 Cupcakery.
