High Dive Hosts Food Truck Rally During SEC Championship

By

Hungry customers headed to downtown Gainesville this weekend to sample local eats at the Original Gainesville Food Truck Rally.

High Dive hosted the rally on Saturday while showing the SEC Championship game inside the venue. The food truck rally has become a local tradition in Gainesville and more than 10 vendors participated this weekend.

The event started at 3 p.m., and the championship game was shown on a large projection screen inside High Dive, as well as three smaller screens in the beer garden. Patrons had free admission to the rally, and bands performed live music during halftime.

The rally had a variety of unique cuisines, including vegetarian and vegan options.

Donations to the food trucks went to Operation Catnip, a charity that has spayed and neutered over 45,000 community cats in Gainesville.
