Tigerton Main Street suffered a blow when it had to cancel its annual Independence Day festivities, and it was due to take another hit later this month when officials decided to cancel Applefest, a favorite in the community for years.

However, officials came up with an event to help with the financial loss, and on Sunday, five food trucks lined up for Tigerton Main Street’s first food truck rally.
