Show attendees and vendors can also eat there and not have to leave the show. I always bring my wife and kids to the shows but we always have to go out for lunch and then go home afterward. I could never go back to the show after lunch for a second look. The organizers need to examine every aspects of the show and try to improve them. They have to do something different, because it is getting old and tiresome , and it is not attracting new people.
    Food truck(s) was brought up at the ZNA SoCal Koi Show committee meeting.

    There was a concern if the City of Gardena would allow it in front of City Hall.

    I have seen food trucks on that street next to the community center, not in front of city hall. City hall is empty on the weekends anyway. Government officials don't work on weekends. Well, if you guys need help arranging for food vendors, let me know, I can help with that department.

Maybe a little recognition of the participants and show volunteers. A little recognition goes a long way. It's free, it promotes the show, it builds comradery. Such a little chore can go a long way.
    Check out the vids of the winners from the Potomac Show.

    Food trucks? Sure, it'll be nice to have some Korean-Mexican food. Or you could also enjoy eating at Furaibo's, great fried Japanese food!
