CLEVELAND -- Wednesday provided beautiful weather to have lunch outdoors and enjoy the sunshine. The only thing better is enjoying food from Cleveland's favorite food trucks on 'Walnut Wednesday.'

Lunch goers had a variety of foods to choose from as hundreds formed long lines for the beginning of 'Walnut Wednesdays.'

"I think it's an awesome scene and I think the music helps. It's great to see something happening down at the square." said Chandler Converse of Cleveland.

Food trucks were parked all around Walnut Avenue in Downtown Cleveland for the 3rd season of 'Walnut Wednesdays'. The Umami Moto food truck was busy cooking up pot stickers. Last year, they were nominated by Cleveland Scene Magazine as 2012's best food truck.

'Walnut Wednesdays' has been incredible, not only for the food truck scene but also for the people who work downtown. It's brought a new vitality for downtown," said Jae Stulock, a food truck owner.

Besides the food, the band 'Faction' was playing some hits for people to dance to and work off those food truck calories.

With all the delicious food, the great weather and the awesome live band, people say the only thing wrong with 'Walnut Wednesdays' is returning back to work after lunch.

"Coming out to something like this in the middle of the work day makes the day wonderful, something to look forward to. Unfortunately, having to go back is not so much fun." said Cachet Johnson of Cleveland.

People say the food trucks need to be out more than just on 'Walnut Wednesdays.'  Many customers suggest the term 'Walnut Weekly.'

If you missed 'Walnut Wednesday,' don't worry. The food trucks will be there every Wednesday until September 25.
