Looking for some food truck flavor in Citrus Heights? Every second Wednesday through September, Food Truck Mania is on schedule to take over part of Rusch Park with a diverse selection of mobile street food offerings.

The monthly event is hosted by SactoMoFo, a group organizing food truck events in the region, and the Sunrise Recreation and Park District. The local event series kicked off last summer at Rusch Park and is continuing this year as well, with food and music on tap each time from 5 to 8 p.m.

Each event features a different truck lineup, with June’s food array featuring Chandos Tacos, Cluck n’ Chuck, Costa’s Finest Kettle Corn, Drewski’s, Flavor Face, Local Kine Shave Ice, Rollin’ Roadhouse and Rudy’s on the Roll, according to SactoMoFo’s Facebook page.

The food truck advocacy group holds similar events each year in the greater-Sacramento region, including monthly “mania” events in downtown Roseville, Vacaville and Loomis. The group was founded in 2011 with a mission “to build acceptance of street food as a viable business model and an appropriate incubator for would-be restaurateurs and other businesspeople.”

Future food truck events at Rusch Park in 2016 are scheduled for the evenings of June 8, July 13, Aug. 10 and Sept. 14.
