CHRISTIANSBURG, Va. (WDBJ7) In Christiansburg the fourth annual Food Truck Rodeo lassoed some goods eats downtown.

This year 14 food trucks set up shop along Main Street. It started as a small idea from Downtown Christiansburg Inc., but has grown into a event that draws thousands of people.

"We came across the food truck rodeo idea and that nobody was doing it in the region, in Southwest Virginia and so we jumped on it, we organized the first one and it was successful beyond our imagination," said David Franusich with Downtown Christiansburg, Inc.

DCI created the rodeo to get people talking about downtown and help bring people to downtown restaurants and businesses.
