Stillwater’s popular food trucks and kid-friendly summer activities will be featured at each event. Adult supervision is required for all children.
“You can expect quality family time and food truck fun with a twist this year,” Special Events Coordinator Stephanie Kinder said. “We’ve revamped our summer food trucks events to feature different types of entertainment and more community engagement.
