Monmouth Park’s popular Food Truck Festival returns Saturday, May 28 and will again span all three days of the Memorial Day Holiday weekend; however, this year will see an expanded area, an early opening and better than 50 trucks on the grounds.

            Gates will open at 11 a.m. Saturday and Sunday, giving fans 30 more minutes to taste treats from their favorite food trucks from across the Garden State.  On Monday, gates open at 11:30 a.m.  In addition, Family Fun Day will be in full force all three days with clowns, pony rides, face painters and a bounce house to entertain the kids.

            The food trucks first rolled into Monmouth in 2012 for a one-day event, which has expanded in size and scope to what it is today.  Among those who will be concocting their culinary delights are:  Empanada Guy, Max’s Hot Dogs, Betty’s Icebox, Red Hook Lobster and Enzo’s Deli, to name a few.

            Over the three-day holiday weekend first post will be 12:50 p.m.  Admission to the Grandstand, where the food trucks will assemble, is $5 – seniors pay $3 and children 12 and under are free.
