"It's a lot of fun. We call it Buffalo's best dinner hour," said Leslie Zemsky the Larkin Square director of fun. "There will be live music each week. It's really a festival that will go from tonight all the way through October 4th."
Food trucks from both Buffalo and Rochester fill the square.
"It's centered in Larkin Square but really there's things going on through Larkinville," said Zemsky. "Our friends at Flying Bison their going to have more food trucks and then we have the consumer craft cruiser. They've volunteered to take folks 21 and older over on a ride around the neighborhood down to Flying Bison."
Two new trucks offering some different food include a Ted's Hot Dog Truck and Gourm-Asian Bistro.

"We are so excited to be done here this year," said Ted.
Condensing an entire store into a truck isn't the easiest thing to do but Ted said it's been an exciting learning experience.
"We learned a lot through trial and error. We had a lot of upgrades this year," said Ted Liaros the director of operations.
"We have crunch burgers, foot long hot dogs and anything else you want," said Mike Murphy a retired restaurant owner who's been working for Ted's for nearly 40 years.
You can also take your food over to Hydraulic Hearth, play on the shuffle board courts and enjoy live music.
Gorm-Asian Bistro says their menu is unlike any other truck.
"We have very unique Asian food with a flare," said Greg the owner. "We have fresh shrimp fried rice made to order."
They also make fresh roasted sea salt broccoli salad, Asian tacos, seaseme chicken, Kung Fu pork rolls, dueling bananas and more.
If you plan on grabbing a bite to eat in the square, don't forget your swag bags!
"We couldn't do any of this without our sponsors," said Zemsky. "First Niagara and Independent Health wanted to join in on the fun too. First Niagara is giving out cell phone wallets and Independent Health will be giving out some backpacks."
