How do you make one of Rockford's most beautiful spots even better? That's right, add in some food trucks to the mix.

"Food Truck Tuesdays" began yesterday at Nicholas Conservatory and Gardens, at it runs through Tuesday, August 27th.

And, it's not just for an hour at a time, either. The food trucks will be dispensing their cuisine from 5pm-9pm every Tuesday evening, making Nicholas Conservatory and Gardens the perfect spot to stop for Tuesday's dinner with the family.

From the Nicholas Conservatory and Gardens website:

Some seating is available, but picnicking is also encouraged! Cash bar by Prairie Street Brewing Company.

Nicholas Conservatory will also be open until 8:30pm with Tropical Tuesday rates ($3 residents / $4 non-residents).

A variety of food trucks will be onsite each week.
