Food trucks are set to make their return to downtown Detroit parks on May 16 and include a lineup of more than 80 different concepts that feature returning favorites and new options. 

David Cowan, chief public spaces officer for the Downtown Detroit Partnership, says the city received more applicants than ever before to bring food trucks to Cadillac Square and the Woodward Esplanade.

"We have so many new trucks participating this year, it's just really refreshing," Cowan said. "It's been fun to watch a lot of entrepreneurs who have been thinking about their dream of opening a truck the past two years now being able to do it."
