Food trucks will be in Kensington Thursday night

The Kensington Business District Association is sponsoring KTown Food Truck Night from 5 to 8 p.m. Thursday on Armory Avenue behind the Safeway grocery store.

The organization sponsored similar events last year between May and October, but there haven’t been any this year yet due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to an event advertised on Facebook, the Corned Beef King, Chix N Stix, Holy Crepes and Carmen’s Italian Ice & Café trucks will be at Thursday’s event.

The event organizers wrote that there will be no tables and chairs. Attendees are asked to wear facemasks and maintain social distancing.
