Food Truck Festival Filled The Fairgrounds On Friday

 Around Town, Charity Events, Home, Latest News, School News, Today's Events  Comments Off on Food Truck Festival Filled The Fairgrounds On Friday
May 272016
 

IMG_0437The third annual Race Brook School Food Truck Festival drew a huge crowd to the Orange Fairgrounds Friday night.

Everyone seemed to have their own strategy as to how they would choose their dinner.

Many knew exactly what they were looking for and made a bee line for the Fish, Grilled Cheese or Falafel, while others looked for familiar faces like Dave from Reno’s or Russ at Fire Dog. Although most had no plan at all and just wandered until they found something that suddenly appealed to their taste buds.

The band Velocity sounded great as it provided background music.

Many vendors of non-food items filled in the center of the field. One thing is for certain this event has grown in three years, both in size and popularity.
