Food Truck Friday
JCBEA was the featured non-profit at the Food Truck Friday event last Friday, August 24th, held at the Lamar Street Center in Arvada. What a great time we had! If you have never been to the Lamar Street Center, it is incredible. They have vintage cars and motorcycles throughout the event center, with more in their car museum. We were blessed to also have a host of classic cars appear at the event for everyone to ogle in the parking lot. They then lined up for a classic car parade through Olde Town Arvada.
