The Shirt Factory will hold a second “Food Truck Corral” from 5 to 8 p.m. July 20 at the courtyard in front of The Shirt Factory at the corner of Lawrence and Cooper streets in Glens Falls.
The debut event last week exceeded expectations and three of the eight food trucks sold out of food by 7:30 p.m., said Eric Unkauf, owner of The Shirt Factory, which has an assortment of small shops and art studios in the rehabilitated factory building.
New vendors are being added for July 20, with a goal of having 16 food trucks and more dinner items, he said.
Lower Adirondack Regional Arts Council is exploring ways to partner with Unkauf to add more arts features to the event, said LARAC Executive Director Candice Frye.

I am intrigued with Jacquie Tinker’s photographs of frogs on exhibit at the North County Arts Center gallery on the second floor of City Hall.
The art gallery has always been a pleasant part of my routine stops at City Hall.
My wife suggests that, after I retire, I will still feel the urge to stop at City Hall to chat about local government dealings.
If you spot me on the second floor after retirement, remind me I’m only there to check out the art.
The art gallery, featuring rotating exhibits, is open to the public free of charge anytime that City Hall is open.
