Food to keep on trucking
The wheeled meal providers will be serving up the fourth instalment of al fresco food with 12 trucks in The Square from 5pm Thursday.
Social media spokesperson for the Palmerston North Street Feast Karlina Mitchell said even during the colder winter nights the event had continued to flourish.
‘‘We couldn’t have foreseen it being as successful as it has been. Thousands of people have come out each time despite the cold. It’s pretty exciting.’’
Along with live music entertainment, several new trucks have joined the convoy, bringing fare from as far away as Jamaica, Greece and Mexico, as well as India and Vietnam.
‘‘We set out to create an event that would get people out and about, and catching up - and eating.’’
While the chilly nights have their own special atmosphere, Mitchell said she was looking forward to warmer months where families didn’t have to swathe themselves in hats, gloves and puffer jackets.
‘‘Spring and summer will create a new dynamic and we’re expecting numbers to increase again.
‘‘We’ll add performers and entertainers, and there’ll be new trucks offering new food experiences.’’
Any updates and weatherrelated changes to Thursday evening’s Food Truck Frenzy in The Square will be posted on the Facebook event page. .
