If you're going to be at our first ever Food Truck Festival happening this Saturday (5/4) in Troy, NY, we want you to Tweet, Instagram, Facebook, Foursquare, flickr, and more with us! Here's a complete guide for the fest including our hashtag for the day and the Twitter handles for a bunch of the trucks. We'll even have a fancy-dandy guide to save to your phone, or print out. We'll also have paper copies at the festival too, but you can save a tree and download it here.
Food truck and social media are two things that seem to go hand in hand.

Social media is perfect for food trucks for many reasons, but largely because it is portable, just like a food truck is. Here's a look at how food trucks are using social media to promote their business, and also how they can utilize different social media platforms.
