The Amity Boys Lacrosse Team welcomed The William Hall Warriors from West Hartford to Woodbridge for a competitive game on Monday.
The Spartans were “on” leading in the first quarter 2-1. The Warriors tied things up in the second quarter 3-3, then Amity lit it up scoring 5 more goals in the third, which was enough to put them over the top and both teams scored 2 goals in the final quarter.
Amity won their fourth game of the season — 10-5.
After being introduced a few years ago, the festival quickly became one of the town’s favorite events, and continues to grow with each passing year.
The Food Trucks will line the Orange Fairgrounds, 525 Orange Center Road, on Friday, May 27 from 4-8 p.m.
The food vendors include: Get Your Irish On Food Truck, serving everything Corned Beef; 744 West Bar & Grill; Buzz Truck; Zuppardi’s Pizza; Shoreline Prime. Also trucks with Pierogies, Vietnamese, Californian, Middle Eastern, American Grill, Seafood, Irish food, Grilled Cheese, Stuffed Potatoes, and so many more.
New to the event, but offering a service instead of food is Safe in the Car, LLC, a licensed Child Passenger Safety Technician (CPST) who offers convenient and personalized car seat installation education at your home or business.
One of the new craft vendors is Hipponotic Candles offering hand-poured candles with only the finest natural ingredients. Made with vegan soybean wax, they burn clean, with almost no residue.
Super Fun Inflatables will be set up to keep the children entertained.
This is going to be another wonderful Food Truck Festival. Mark your Calendars and don’t make any plans for dinner that night!
