Wednesday, February 29, 2012 Orlando' s Food Trucks No comments
Apopka Food Truck Round up is giving away a Sexy Six pack of Cupcakes from The Yum Yum Cupcake Truck. All you have to do is go to their Facebook and "LIKE" their page and after they reach their milestone of 2000 fans, they will give one lucky fan a 6-pack of cupcakes.
(These are not the actual cupcakes that you will be receiving
but they are a sexy six from The Yum Yum Cupcake Truck)
Join them Tomorrow March 1st, 2012 & Every First Thursday of the Month the City of Apopka gathers 14 food trucks at Kit Land Nelson Park (10 North Forest Ave, Apopka, FL 32703.) from 5:30 - 9:00pm.
Live Entertainment is provided, Wine and Beer from Shipyard and Free Parking in Edwards Field.
Some tips for "first timers":
- Pets are not allowed in Kit Land Nelson Park.
- Bring cash. While some trucks accept credit cards, not all do.
- Be prepared to wait in lines, as food is freshly prepared. This is not fast food, rather a restaurant on wheels.
- Try a few things. To get the full food truck experience, foodies suggest trying a main course from one truck,
side item from another, and a dessert from another.
- Tables and chairs are provided by the City of Apopka, but if you want to make a picnic out of it, bring a
blanket. Many times, tables are occupied.
