For the third year in a row, Bite Nite is taking over City Market Pavilion.

Honestly, what's better than a night filled with food. Nothing.

However, it is a little more fun when it's packed with bites, so you can try EVERYTHING instead of having to choose.

That's what going on Saturday, July 27 at City Market Pavilion. For the third year in a row, Bite Nite is back, brought to you by OSF Healthcare. Rockford area restaurants and food trucks are coming together to compete for 'best bite.'

Categories this year include: appetizer, handheld, spoonful, sweet bite and best craft cocktail.

The cocktail category is new this year and you better believe I'm excited to see that on the list!

In addition to the deliciousness, there will also be live music from Gary the Band and American Idol contestant Adem Dalipi.

Again this year, Sweet Lenny and I will be judging the competition along with fellow foodie, Rachel from Rockford Cravings.

You get to vote on the best bites too, just get your tickets and join us and get your bite on.

The list of restaurants and food trucks for this year's Bite Nite continues to grow, so far here is who's on deck to share some deliciousness.
