This might be your last chance for the year to catch Food Truck Fridays at Simmons Bank Arena. Director of Marketing Jana DeGeorge said arena staff might schedule more dates in the series in November, but the decision is still pending. Last week’s event was canceled due to lightning, but sunshine is finally in the forecast tomorrow.

Domestic beer, popcorn and cotton candy will also be available.
