HARRISONBURG, Va. -- This year, people in Harrisonburg have the chance to take food tours in addition to restaurant specials for Taste of Downtown.

Rocktown Bites Food Tours are featuring special tours that showcase international cuisine downtown.

The tour is called "Around the World in Rocktown" and includes Blue Nile, Cuban Burger and Three Brothers Brewing, among others.

People will have the chance to hear from a manager, chef, or owners of the eateries at the restaurants.

The food tours start at 2 p.m. and last from Thursday to Saturday.

The owners of Rocktown Bites Food Tours said they want locals to come out for this tour.

"Many of them have been from out of town which is really exciting for us to show off Harrisonburg to some people who don't know it well, but we're also interested in having locals come on our tours. We promise you will learn something new and different, even if you visit a restaurant that you may have visited before," said Co-Owner Erin Young.

"We've doubled up on what we're offering each one of the businesses. I think what's different about downtown Harrisonburg is just the fact that there's no chains. I mean you come downtown and you get a unique experience, things that are locally owned and run here in our town," said Co-Owner Regina Hissong.

This tour is a partnership with the Harrisonburg Downtown Renaissance.
