Aug. 18, 2017
SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) — Falafel tots, salt potato pizza and apple cheesecake eggrolls are among the offerings of 40 food trucks competing at the New York State Fair next month.
Food trucks from across the state will participate in the two-day event the first weekend in September. They'll use ingredients made or grown in New York.
Fairgoers can buy $3 samples and vote for their favorites. A People's Choice award will be announced each day and a panel of food industry experts will declare Judges' Choice winners.
Last year, 17 food trucks competed and over 2,500 fairgoers voted. The Meatball Truck's Meatball Cup won the People's Choice award and The Silo Truck's Telekinetic Fried Chicken won the Judges' Choice award.
