WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) -

Hundreds flocked to downtown Wichita Falls Saturday for the Falls Town Food Truck Challenge and Festival. 

"What a great atmosphere. People (are) walking around just having fun and talking to one another," Dejuan Wallace said. 

The Lions Club hosted the event and the money raised is going towards helping downtown development projects. 

Several food trucks served food from locally owned businesses. 

"We're really excited about Wichita Falls having something like this, and we want to support everything they do. We want to come and try all the food," Teresa Wallace said. 

One of those trucks was serving up food from Twenty 11 Bistro. That restaurant opened in June of 2014 in downtown Wichita Falls.

Owner and Wichitan himself, Demrick Davis jumped at the chance to help raise money for downtown development projects. 

"I used to come downtown as a child. (I) used to go to Gibson's, and I remember the fresh popcorn they would make every morning. I just remember the spirit of downtown and what it used to be. I just want to be a part of helping to bring that back," Davis said. 

Whipping up his signature dish the grilled chicken flatbread, Davis is hopeful the support of developing an area that used to thrive continues. 

"We just need to help continue that process and continue growing downtown that way we can have a good successful downtown like other large cities and just have something of our own," Davis said.
