NATIONAL TACO DAY 2020 — October 4

The typical definition of “Taco”, a usually fried tortilla that is folded or rolled and stuffed with a mixture of ingredients, such as seasoned meat, cheese, and lettuce, among other things, is just too dang simple once you hit the streets of The Fort when your taco craving hits you.

National Taco Day is Sunday, October 4th.  What’s Up Fort Worth is giving you some notice so you can start indulging NOW.  You can finish up with your tastings on Sunday, or why not stretch your own version of National Taco Day until Halloween.  All of your favorite taco spots will not mind one single bit.
