The festival will run from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. both days. This year trucks have come from states including Nevada and California to serve up everything from milk products and lobster grilled cheese to fry bread and fried chicken.

Throughout the day you'll be able to see others people stuff their faces with food during Twinkie eating, hot dog eating, pie eating, sandwich eating, and (perhaps the cruelest of them all) saltine eating contests. They'll be held hourly from 12:45 to 4:45 on the EATERAZ Contest Stage. You can view the schedule of contests here.

This year, parking for the event will be free -- or rather, $3 of your admission ticket will be designated for parking expenses. A nice change.

General admission tickets cost $12 a person and children under 12 are free. VIP tickets cost $50 each and include access to a VIP lounge, six drink vouchers, and four food tokens. To purchase tickets visit the Street Eats website.

It’s taken us a lot of time to perfect.”
