DUNWOODY, Ga. — Dunwoody’s weekly summer crowd pleaser, Food Truck Thursdays, will close its 2019 season Oct. 24 with ’70s and ’80s cover band Yacht Rock Schooner. 

Dunwoody Food Truck Thursdays is a partnership between Dunwoody Homeowners Association, Redbird Events and the City of Dunwoody.

From May through October, every Thursday from 5 p.m. until dark Brook Run Park hosts an assortment of food trucks and live music. 

Food Truck Thursdays began in May 2013. This October, Food Truck Thursdays will hold its 150th event. 

The most popular night so far this season was in mid-May, with an estimated 1,700 attendees, DHA Event Producer Bill Grossman said. 

The final night of the seventh season will feature a Halloween costume contest. Last year, there were more than 150 contestants across several categories. 

The musical talent for the night, Yacht Rock Schooner, is an eight-man band specializing in the smooth sounds from the late ’70s and early ’80s. With a dual keyboard setup, multiple ace vocalists and a sax man. Their song list includes the music of Hall & Oates, Steely Dan and Kenny Loggins.
