ANN ARBOR, Mich. - Who doesn't love live music and great food?
Tonight, the Ann Arbor Farmers Market is having its September Food Truck Rally, and it's going to be huge.
The rallies have been filling the market for a few years now, but this summer has been the biggest year yet.
The annual event's season lasts from May through October every year and the rallies take place on the first Wednesday of every month.

Organizers expect tonight's event to be the most successful rally ever, with 14 food trucks to choose from, children's activities (including face painting!), and a variety of live music from local musicians/bands.
Organizers have also partnered with Zero Waste Washtenaw to promote recycling and composting in order to reduce waste.
