If you love the idea of slamming a plateful of food-truck tacos and hitting the Silver Streak, the Tequesta Fest may be your opportunity to do just that. The Tequesta Fest, from 1 to 7 p.m. Saturday at Paradise Park, will have carnival rides, live music, and a dozen food trucks.
Slated to appear are Big Belly's Deli, Curbside Gourmet, Divan Bakery, Dolce Gourmet Cupcakes, Herbeque truck, On the Side, Out of Many, Philly Grill, Stocked 'N' Loaded, Taco Fresh, and the Fire Within. Admission to the fest is free to $10.
New this year is a kick-off party from 6 to 10 p.m. Friday with beer, bands, and food trucks (basically the same lineup as Saturday). Admission to the preparty is free to $5. Both days, there will be a food drive drop-off point at event entrances to benefit Good Shepherd.
