MANSFIELD, OH- The second annual Food Truck Festival brought out lots of people to Mansfield's South Park on Friday. 

The festival featured lots of different vendors and local crafts, allowing attendees to try new foods and see local art. The event was put on by the Mansfield Parks and Recreation Department and lasted from 11 am.- 6 pm.  

Mansfield Park and Recreation director Mark Abrams came up with the idea for the festival because he likes to eat food and wanted to show that parks have more to offer than just plants to the public. 

"When I started here last year, he (Abrams) wanted to bring some different things to the park," said Mansfield Parks and Recreation Recreation Coordinator, Angel Ross-Taylor. "He just thought if we just brought a food truck festival that it would be cool for some locals to make some money and to see that you can have other things in a park than just plants."

Ross-Taylor said the public has received the festival well and some even want to have food trucks in the parks not just for a festival.
