It's time again for the Food Truck Rally in River Forest, with 10 trucks serving up sweet and savory treats to hungry attendees. 

From the creatively-named Tamale Spaceship to Trattoria 225, attendees can sample cuisines ranging from Chinese to Mexican to good ol' fashioned American (grilled cheese, anyone?). Six local brewers will sponsor the beer and wine tent — featuring recognized names like Exit Strategy and Cooper's Hawk. For families, there will be music by performers from the School of Rock, inflatable bounce houses, a Pickleball demo and more. Fun runs from 3:30 to 9:30 p.m. on Aug. 25 at The Depot, 401 Thatcher Ave. 

All proceeds from the rally will be donated to local nonprofits. The Rotary Club of Oak Park-River Forest is sponsoring the event.
