According to organizer Steve Simon (who also organizes other roundups, including Truckers Out West and Way Out West), the event will be the first to have obtained a permit from Miami-Dade under the new Food Truck amendment passed May 17th.
The county law requires tax certificates for all trucks, sanitation and site plans, as well as permission from 80 percent of residents who live within 1,000 feet of the event. There's also a one-time fee of about $500.
The Miami Street Food Court will feature over two dozen food trucks, as well as a giant-screen set up where patrons can watch the Heat game. Parking is free.
