#‎HealthyHappyHour‬ Block Party

On July 22nd, TruckBeat held an afternoon block party at The Central Collective in north Knoxville. 

Fun was had by all, despite the day's extremely hot and humid temperatures. Delicious food was provided by some of Knoxville's best food trucks, and there were lots of activities for adults and kids, including free face-painting, a photobooth with Shawn Poynter, yoga and children's movement classes – and more!
