Tacos. It's a dish so popular, that it's getting its own festival at the Manatee County Fairgrounds as Cinco de Mayo celebrations continue in the Tampa Bay area.

  •  Taco Fest is being held Saturday from noon to 6 p.m. at the Manatee County Fairgrounds

  •  El Sombrero Mexican Restaurant will be debuting a new food truck at this year's event

  • Manager Bonnie Rojas says she hopes the truck will bring new customers to her restaurant

Taco Fest will cap off the busiest week of the year for Bonnie Rojas, who manages El Sombrero Mexican Restaurant in Palmetto.

“So we decided to do a taco truck just to add another venture to the restaurant,” she said.

This weekend’s Taco Fest will be their food truck’s first event.

“So I’m a perfectionist, so I want everything to go smooth I want it to be perfect," Rojas said. "I want them to love it.”

And she knows working out of a food truck will be a lot different.

“It’s gonna be claustrophobic," she said. "Like, you see this huge restaurant? And now I have to go into a 24 by what, eight (foot space)?”

She said it will all be worth it, though, because the truck will help put their food in front of potentially thousands of new customers.

“And bring them to our restaurant on Taco Tuesday,” Rojas said.

Taco fest is Saturday from noon to 6 p.m. at the Manatee County Fairgrounds in Palmetto.
