Park Hill starts first ever "Patio in Park Hill"

Park Hill starts first ever "Patio in Park Hill"

NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - The ParkHill Business and Merchant Association is hosting Park Hill's first ever food truck event.

"Patio in Park Hill" is a North Little Rock community based event that will have several food trucks, a local craft beer tent and area vendors present for the public to enjoy. This event will be happening on Thursday, August 27 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the LakeHill Shopping Center in Park Hill off John F. Kennedy Blvd. 

Since the recent passage of both a revised food truck ordinance and a law allowing beer sales in Park Hill, the business community wanted to create a new sense of spirit and neighborhood development. They believe a food truck event could do just that.
