FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA21)- Local restaurant, Junk Ditch still held a food truck rally on their front lawn while also making sure people were staying socially distant.

"We wanted to make sure we're being as safe as possible and we're helping people stay safe too, but also its food truck season and we want to get back to that sense of normalcy," owner Daniel Campbell said.

In order to keep people safe, folks were encouraged to look at the food trucks menus before coming in and ordering to go.

"It's always fun to see Fort Wayne because the get very excited about food truck season every year, this will be our 8th season with our food truck and its really neat to see it grow they way it is now and its become kind of apart of the culture in Fort Wayne which is really neat," Campbell said.

While they wait they were able to enjoy some music and some company at a safe distance.

"To hear live music playing and to see people out even if you're at distance from them it just makes you feel better than the isolation we were all under," attendee Triana Morgan said.

Although things were a little different, there was still some optimism.

"At least we get to socialize with people we haven't seen in a while because we've all be stuck inside," attendee Brittany Brown said.

People say they're happy to support local during this time.

"Its heart warming to know that we impact that many people to a level that they feel like they have to support us if they want us to be around, especially right now," Campbell said.
