Monmouth Park’s popular Food Truck Festival returns this Saturday and for the first time will span all three days of the Memorial Day Holiday weekend.  With trucks from across the state set to invade the racetrack, the Food Truck Festival will get underway at 11:30 a.m. each of the three days.

            “In just a short period of time, this event has stamped itself a true fan-favorite,” said Pete Verdee, vice president of marketing for the racetrack.  “It’s a great experience for everyone involved and an event that I’m sure will continue to grow in the years to come.”

            The food trucks first rolled into Monmouth in 2012 for a one-day event.  Last year they spent two days at Monmouth and of course this year they’ll spend three days in Oceanport.

            Among those who will be concocting their culinary delights are:  Empanada Man, Max’s Hot Dogs, Hoffman’s Ice Cream, Bacon on Wheels and Enzo’s Pizza, to name but a few.

            Monmouth Park gates open at 11:30 a.m., with the first live race slated for 12:50 p.m.  Admission to the Grandstand, where the food trucks will assemble, is $3 – seniors pay $2 and children 12 and under are free.
