    Sorry to hear that the changed date won't work for you. We weren't having much success finding vendors for the initial date, so it wouldn't have been much of a fest on the October date.

    I suppose.

    It’s just a bummer because they’re either in Des Moines or on dates when I’m unavailable.

    Great news!

    El Gringo Loco taco truck has agreed to serve us food at fall fest. I tried them out the other day and they are very very good. I had the tacos and I was pleasantly surprised to see that they are an authentic style street taco!!! My favorite!!!! :)

    They will be parked outside of the event and will be serving from 11am-4pm so bring an appetite for good quality cooking.
    Here is a menu of what they will be serving with prices.
    They will also have pop and water for $1.00
