We all love heading to South Congress during the weekend. Foodies, locals and tourists have come to this spot since 2009 to spend time shopping, while getting a quick bite to eat at the ever-famous food trailers. Four years ago after, the company who houses C3 Presents (the organizer for ACL), plans to build a hotel failed, trailers took over to rent space on the property; however, two weeks ago, the dreaded notification finally came that come March, the owners must pack up their trailers in order to make way for a new hotel.

With the rising number of people moving to Austin in the past few decades, will making way for these new hotels change the vibe of Austin from “weird locals” to a more business corporate crowd? While growth of hotels are needed in order for Austin to be more successful, the food trailers are a local iconic spot and have become a well known spot for tourists in Austin. They can only hope customers will follow wherever they move to… wherever that will be.
