This Illinois Food Truck Event helps answer the big, 'what do I most want in life' question. My answer is to eat and be entertained. Galena is a good place to start.

The Best Things in Life: Food & Entertainment

I'd like to attend an event where I'm entertained and you basically eat all day long. And not just me, my kids can have exactly what they want too, just as long as it's also to eat all day long and be entertained. If I was to ask my seven-year-old if she'd be interested in those two things, she'd be in the car telling me to "drive faster old man!"

If having a blast all day long and eating delicious food made from some of the Midwest's best food trucks sounds like a good day, wait until you see this.
