“Rolling Thunder” Food Truck Festival at Ellison Park

August 16th, 2015

The Rochester Rolling Thunder Festival is coming to Ellison Park this Saturday. [IMAGE: RocPX.com]
Story via Tin Man Events

This Saturday Ellison Park will host Rolling Thunder – The Food Truck Wonder external link and what’s being billed as “a food truck rodeo on steriods.” Rolling Thunder will be the first food truck event to take place at a Monroe County Park…

“Rolling Thunder is an exciting, first time, event for our County Park System” said Monroe County Executive Maggie Brooks. “Food truck rodeos are incredibly popular across the nation and Monroe County is happy to host a local twist at Ellison Park.”

This event will have at least 19 well-known food trucks from around the area – Marty’s Meats, Stingray Sushi Fusion, Macrollin, and Le Petit Poutine to name a few.

The fun doesn’t stop at food trucks. Regional and local bands will play throughout the day. Music will include Tommy Brunett Band, Jackson Cavalier & The Revelers, Teresa Wilcox, and the always wonderful Cammy Enaharo. And an array of family-friendly activities (bounce houses, an art area, face painting, story time, etc.) are also part of the program.

Beer, wine, and other non-alcoholic refreshments will be available for purchase. There is a $3.00 cover charge per person, and children under 12 are free.

“Rolling Thunder is a food truck rodeo on steroids,” said Joe Alessi of Tin Man Events, producer of Rolling Thunder. “This culinary collision is bringing the best of what the community desires to beautiful Ellison Park. We hope you will come and bring the whole family for a great day of outdoor fun. We are excited to partner with County Executive Maggie Brooks and the Parks Department to make this exciting event part of the summer fun in Monroe County.”

  1. Claire W. says:

    I’m sorry, but I don’t think the public should ever have to pay a cover charge to enjoy the parks that they own! Additionally, some of us enjoy the parks as quiet, peaceful, and natural places. Just my opinion.

  2. Powers says:

    Come on, Claire. It’s one day, and one park.

  3. Claire W. says:

    It’s one valuable summer Saturday. If you frequent the parks on those days you will notice a lot of people using them…and some of them may not have their own backyards…

  4. Lucas M. says:

    I agree parks are a public place not a place to make money off the public.

  5. A festival for one afternoon is not quite the same thing as losing a section of a public park permanently for such things as a zoo, golf course, apartment building or highway – which, incidentally, have all happened here in Rochester.

  6. Claire W. says:

    Can I just point out that it’s not one afternoon. Witness what’s going on this weekend at Ellison. http://www.democratandchronicle.com/story/sports/2015/09/02/cyclocross-festival-ellison-park/71572652/

    Gee, I hope you weren’t planning on taking your dog for a walk. Oh wait, for $24 you could bring your dog to the Ellison Pk dog park….

  7. Right, but that’s not the same event. And this one is free for spectators. The fee is if you’re participating in the race.

  8. park goer says:

    the date is conflicting. It says “this saturday” and then it says saturday august 22nd. That is a monday???

  9. Please be sure to check the date and year of the article.

  10. Nick says:

    I really wish that this was all I had to concern myself with in life. Claire you are one lucky person to have this has your main problem in life. Congratulations on being the one to complain about something so trivial! Let’s just cancel all of the Rochester events to make EVERYONE happy! That should do wonders for our economy here. Get a clue Claire.

    On a side note, if our “Leaders” would do something with the violence in this city maybe they wouldn’t have to charge for stuff to cover security costs, etc. Just something to ponder on your next walk in the park.

  11. Cara Seraxio says:

    Life is good. I am glad they had the festival. It was in one small section. People didn’t have to go to it.. Get over and let other people have fun.

  12. Nick says:

    Yes Claire, you will be happy to know that they did not shut down the entire park for this and they didn’t tie up and drag people to the event. Everyone suvived, the world continued to spin normally, and life went on (those of us that have one). I was thinking, with all of the extra time you must have to think about this trivial stuff, perhaps you should turn that negative energy into positive by volunteering for organizations to help kids, cancer patients terminally ill people, the poor, etc., etc., etc. It just may put things in better perspectve for you. Enjoy you undoubtedly perfect day!
