Sunday’s Food Truck Roundup will again bring a feeding frenzy to the Benjamin Plumbing Supply parking lot on Sixth Street and Seventh Avenue.

The free event corrals the top tier of Tucson’s mobile eateries from 4 to 8 p.m. About 25 food trucks are expected to participate. Among those listed on Tucson Food Trucks' Facebook page are Trucking Good Cupcakes, The Corn Roasters, and  Vero Amore Neapolitan Pizza.

Jamaican, Chinese, German, Mexican and barbecued fare will be represented, along with a slew of dessert-serving trucks.

Past roundups have drawn several thousand people, who waited in line for upwards of an hour to sample the Korean-Mexican fusion of MaFooCo and other popular vendors.

The roundup will also nourish the creative appetite with performers of various artistic inclinations.

The Awkward Moments, an eclectic local band featuring an accordion and a musical saw in their line-up, will perform.

Artists Mel Dominguez and Danny Velasquez will be creating another collaborative piece, and are always more than happy to discuss their work with curious onlookers.

The kiddos can enjoy balloon bending, face painting, and an art table, while parents munch away at nearby folding tables.

Dogs are welcome, but past events drew large crowds and loud noises that could scare shy canines.
