Burns Harbor Food Truck Square opening night

Attendees had plenty of options on the opening night of the Burns Harbor Food Truck Square this past Saturday, Aug. 6 with the first in a series of events featuring regional eateries for dinner and a movie.

The evening drew more than 150 adults and children at 1237 Westport Rd. — the former site of the Westport Community Club at the corner of Haglund and Westport roads, off of S.R. 149. Families, neighbors and friends enjoyed food trucks/vendors such as Mama's Kitchen, The Brown Bag, Designer Desserts and Xtreme Freeze. The Burns Harbor Fire Department and the Chesterton-Porter Rotary Club were also on-site serving those who attended the Star Wars-themed event.

The next event, The Badge & You, will be held Friday, Aug. 26 from 4 to 8 p.m. The community and law enforcement appreciation night will feature a variety of regional officers in attendance. Attendees are encouraged to wear blue to show their support for the fine men and women serving Northwest Indiana.
