Despite a soggy Sunday, organizers said it was a busy weekend.

Janet Prensky, the Co-Founder of Food Truck Festivals of America said, "We still had a wonderful turnout yesterday [Saturday]. Our food trucks were bustling, the beer tent was bustling. We have stilt walkers, kid’s activities, just a great day."

The food trucks ranged from wood-fired pizza, tacos, and even barbecue.

Organizers said plenty of locals made their way out despite the rain.

Prensky said, "People are still coming out today. It's not pouring from start to finish, obviously, it's inclement. But as I say, it's the nature of our business, we accept it, we live with it, and we're still thrilled to be here in Panama City Beach."

The festival wrapped up Sunday evening and organizers said they plan to be back next year, rain or shine.

"You know, I find that no matter what the weather, people still like to eat and drink. There's something about eating and drinking, you can do it no matter what," Prensky said.
