This Saturday Ellison Park will host Rolling Thunder – The Food Truck Wonder 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.”
