From gyros, tacos and Cuban sandwiches, to burgers, hot dogs and ice cream, Saturday's Food Truck Fight in LeClaire promises to satisfy most cravings.

Nine Iowa-based mobile vendors will be competing for votes during the event, which runs from noon to 10 p.m. on the levee in LeClaire, 117 S. Front St. 

Food trucks, trailers and carts will dish out samples to patrons — either for free or a small price — who then will vote for their favorite restaurant on wheels.

Attendees will elect their choice by placing a token, which will be distributed upon entry, into a bucket next to each vendor. Voting begins at noon and ends at 6 p.m. The winner will be announced at 7 p.m.

The family-friendly festival also will feature beer, live music, arcade games from Analog Arcade Bar, Davenport, and a bounce house for children. Admission for everyone is $5, except for children under 12, who will get in for free.

Quad-City entertainer Bobby Ray Bunch and Robert Day, owner of The Faithful Pilot in LeClaire, co-organized the first-of-its-kind event.
