Food Truck Festival Coming to McKinley Park Saturday
Park'd Pop-Up Pub & Grub will have food trucks and a 1960's milk truck dispensing beer.
A new food truck festival will take place on Milwaukee’s lakefront this weekend.
Vendors will include Wisconsin Fried Cheese Curds, Immy’s African Cuisine and Heavenly Roasted Nuts.
The event was created by a budget amendment from Milwaukee County Supervisor Sheldon Wasserman.
“Tomorrow will be a beautiful day, and this event is a perfect opportunity to support our incredible parks system by enjoying some local food and the lakefront before cheering on the Bucks in game 5,” said Wasserman in a statement.
While it was Wasserman’s amendment that got the ball rolling, James Tarantino, director of business services for Parks, said in March that the department had been looking into ways to use special uses to support food trucks.
More events are planned.
“This is just a warmup! Park’d has more lakefront events coming. We’ll return to the lakefront August 28-29,” says the event website.
