15 Food Trucks Roll into Orange Fairgrounds for RBS Food Truck Festival

1 May

Update:  due to the threat of storms, the Food Truck Festival is postponed until May 23, 4-8 pm.  Please spread the word and tell your friends about the new date.  

One of the key benefits of the weather getting nicer (theoretically, look at it outside, bleh) is that it’s food truck season.  Of course, in our minds, any season is food truck season, but we can be realistic and say that a good majority of trux go into hibernation.  Well, shake off those sleepy heads because Race Brook School has put together a monster food truck festival for May 16 23 from 4-8 PM.

There are probably not many things that are more New Englandy than clambakes. So, lets just concede and agree with us for the sake of this post. Deal? Deal.

Leaving at 6 pm from the Sheffield Island Lighthouse dock on the corner of North Water and Washington, the C.J. Toth catamaran will take you for a cruise around the sound then let you off for a killer dinner on Sheffield Island, overlooking the lighthouse. While you’re there, you’ll also have a tour of the 145 year old Sheffield Island Lighthouse!
