On Friday, August 9th 2019 the Selah Sweets Food Truck staff met up with Kim’s Got Smoke BBQ in Union Gap to convoy to Desert-Aire to vend at Hot Desert Nights. We used our F350 with camper for our booth supplies and pulled Kim’s Got Smoke BBQ generator trailer.

Once at the Desert-Aire Park, we set up two pop-ups tied to the F350 for the SS Food Truck booth. This was a very nice park with some cool toys you don’t see these days. The kids enjoyed playing until dark.

Around midnight the wind picked up and broke one of the pop-ups loose. We got up and untied that pop-up from the other. With the high winds pushing the pop-up in the air like a parachute, we had to fight it to get it on the ground so it did not pull the other pop-up with it. Around 1:30 AM we had everything moved in the second pop-up and secure.

Saturday morning we had to re-setup the SS Food Truck Booth. Other vendors came and setup too.

The Car show started at 11 am. There were many cool vehicles including some boats and bicycles.  Around 3:30 pm the rain came in hard. A lot of people took there cars home.

People started coming back after the rain for the party. The live band started a little after 7 pm. The band was great and everyone had fun. We hope to come back to this event next year.

Sunday morning, we packed up and convoyed back to the Yakima area.
