Despite rainy weather, "Tacopocalypse" in Boston still brought a crowd of people to the taco based event.

Seven food trucks parked in the SoWa Food Truck Bazaar & Beer Garden on Harrison Avenue from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, June 24. 

Accompanied by a beer garden stocked with craft beers, the kid and pet friendly event featured local Boston food trucks: North East of the BorderBon MeRice BurgFrozen HoagiesRhythm 'n WrapsSweet Bubble and Mediterranean Home Cooking.

Tacopocalypse is just one installment of EatBoston and SoWa Open Market's monthly block parties in Boston's South End area.

Just a few blocks down from the food trucks, an outdoor farmers market and artisan market also drew a crowd. 

Tacopocalypse promised a catastrophic scale of tacos, with each food truck having to prepare one to two "Tacopocalypse" themed dishes.

However, North East of the Border was the only food truck completely dedicated to tacos and the other food trucks reluctantly stayed true to their own food styles.

Next month's SoWa Open Market block party, will feature lobster as the main attraction on Saturday and Sunday, July 8 and 9.
