Calling all fellow Americans and foodies! Truck Stop: Food Truck Rally is coming to the Stanley Marketplace for all-American food, Fourth of July-themed cocktails, and more!

This Independence Day, there will be no shortage of fireworks, American spirit and fun, and most importantly, food. 'Cause, c'mon, this is America we're talking about here, and we all know that food is crucial to any get-together. Luckily, Truck Stop: Food Truck Rally is rolling into the Stanley Marketplace in Aurora, so there will be more than enough food to go around, and then some.

When: July 4 from 1 to 8 p.m.
Where: Stanley Marketplace -- 501 Dallas St., Aurora, CO

There will be plenty of shaded areas to relax, dine, and enjoy one another's company across the Stanley Marketplace's outdoor space -- about five acres worth of good eatin' and drinkin'!

Plus, a lineup of local musicians and artists will keep you entertained as you soak in the warm summer sun and bask in the freedom of our great country! The musical lineup will be announced closer to the event, so keep an eye out on the Truck Stop: Food Truck Rally's website and Facebook page. There will also be DJs scattered throughout the rally.
