Dozens of small businesses and families gathered at Coolidge Park on Saturday for the 2024 Food Truck Rally and Vendor Show.

“To get people back outside and have fun, get your families back outside and enjoy the outdoors again,” said Kim Krause, owner of K&S Southern Hospitality Events.

Kim Krause organized Saturday’s festivities, bringing together dozens of vendors and food trucks, as well as a bouncing Titanic ship to entertain the whole family.

“We have jewelry, we have crochet, we have wreaths, woodwork, just all kinds of things,” Krause said.

“I can do yip yips, I just started doing it. Remember the yip yips from the Muppets? Yip, yip, yip, yip,” said Faith Larson, owner of Loops and Lasers.

Faith Larson specializes in making plush toys and crochet items, while her husband lasers customizable charcuterie boards and keychains.

“We can say, ‘Happy Father’s Day,’ it’s tomorrow, y’all need Father’s Day gifts, y’all come here and get them,” Larson said.

For the more sentimental dads among you, a handmade gift could make the day more special while also supporting local businesses.

“You get a more personal face-to-face connection, you learn where the product you’re buying comes from, you can actually shake hands with the person who made these things, it feels a little more relatable and personal,” said John Englebert.

“Many retailers are gearing up for gifts. It’s the perfect day to go out and look for something for Father’s Day. Let the kids play at the fountain and come shop,” Larson said.

Saturday’s dealer show ended at 3 p.m. You can look forward to the “Christmas in July” event hosted by K&S Southern Hospitality Events next month.
