Apparently, there is a "Food Truck Rally" in Candy Apple Grove.  There are several food trucks along the path.  We don't see KD's truck, however.  I suppose they are busy with the Oktoberfest booths a few yards away.

Sorry to double post, but the more I think about this, the more confused I become.

The same weekend as the State Fair right outside the park and Oktoberfest inside the park, they have an unmarketed food truck event?

This weekend is already slow for KD. Why would they decide it is a good time to have a bunch of outside restaurants in Candy Apple Grove? We can't find anything about it on the KD site.

Someone help me with the logic.

Well one possible idea is maybe this was an effort to free up staff by lightning the crowds at there own restaurants so that they had more hands to help with Octoberfest. I mean kd is traditionally short handed this time of year.

Their other eateries were open.

Regardless, the timing is nuts. And what is the point in an unadvertised event.

It would be nice if the park did the food truck rally during Haunt; especially on Saturdays. The food options are so limited during this time and, with the number of park visitors attending Haunt on a Saturday, these food trucks would be a big help. Plus, they would make a killing in sales.

I totally agree mwhinva. Unfortunately I spoke to an executive who was checking out the event and he confirmed that they were only doing it this last weekend. Downright bizarre.

It seems like someone set this event up to fail deliberately. I got a flyer at the toll both on the way in and it was the first I had heard of the event. I was shocked. I feel like I am pretty well informed when it comes to stuff like this and I though, wow, if I didn't know about it, how could anybody else!

You got a flier? We got an Oktoberfest flier, but not one for the Food Truck Rally. We didn't know it existed, until we went to check out Trick or Treat.

The flyer was for Oktoberfest only, I like to chat with the toll people and they mentioned the rally and where it was located. Just to clarify.

the world may never know...

but seriously they do need to get their act together, they've made themselves look pretty bad especially when BGW has been making some really good choices.

^This. I feel like they've lost all the momentum they had from 2013 up until 2015. They had the chance the chance to march themselves onto the same field as BGW and establish themselves as a serious player in the region and blew it.

And no, I don't think this has anything to do with Cedar Fair or Carowinds. We've seen the park time and time again make stupid, detrimental decisions that could only be the product of incompetent internal leadership.
