The 6th annual Main Street Food Truck Festival in Little Rock, Arkansas drew an estimated crowd of 50,000 this year.  In anticipation of the bigger crowd, the festival also extended along Capitol Avenue.  The Festival was established in 2010 by the Main Street Revitalization Task Force/Downtown Little Rock Partnerships, whose efforts, along with those of the City of Little Rock, plus funding from ArtPlace America, have led to a major transformation of Main Street.

The Festival featured the debut of the new tickertape sign, 60 food trucks, buskers, young artists, and the Anheuser-Busch Clydesdales.
