The main parking lot at Flinthills Mall was full Saturday for the mall’s fall rendition of its Food Truck Rally.
Several new vendors attended, including Shelby Rappel of Shelby’s Snack Shack. Rappel came to Emporia from Gill, Colorado, although she has family connections to Neosho Rapids.
Karl Baker brought Lazy Butt BBQ back to the mall for the rally. He says it’s a great atmosphere.
Mall marketing manager Heather Siebert says the community obviously enjoys the event.
Nine vendors were on hand, with food ranging from barbecue to sweets to hot dogs. Stores inside the mall also had deals to spin off the rally, and Petsense had a pet adoption event as well.
