During the 5-7 p.m. time frame, nine food trucks will be open to start serving up hot dogs, burgers, gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches, rice balls, wood fired personal pizzas, BBQ favorites, plantains bowls, jalapeno grenades, tacos, arepas, empanadas, cheesecake on a stick, ice cream, Italian ices, funnel cake, cotton candy, root beer floats and other cold beverages.

All the food trucks will remain open when the fabulous Jersey Sound Band take the stage at 7:15 p.m. for a two-hour concert.
