Ok­to­ber Feast in The Square


Break out the leder­ho­sen, this week’s Food Truck Thurs­day is go­ing Bavar­ian.

Hard on the heels of Septem­ber’s ‘spring fling’, when hun­dreds of hun­gry rev­ellers crowded The Square and bade ‘‘win­ter, bye bye’’, this month’s themed food truck­ers’ pop-up kitchen is Ok­to­ber Feast.

Street­food Con­cepts’ Karli Mitchell said Thurs­day’s 5pm to 9pm al fresco food frenzy will pro­vide a great ex­cuse for pa­trons to dress up.

‘‘What we’re go­ing to do is recre­ate the jovi­al­ity, flavour and fun of Ok­to­berFest in The Square, with a crowd of peo­ple en­joy­ing the at­mos­phere to­gether, long ta­bles, light­ing sup­port, and other Bavar­ian style dec­o­ra­tions.’’

Could that pos­si­bly ex­tend to yo­delling and tra­di­tional schuh­plat­ter danc­ing?

Maybe there’ll be some brass oom­pah styles go­ing down, but cer­tainly there should be braces, knee socks, feath­ered hats, dirndl dresses, blouses, rib­bons and plaits, and there will be live mu­sic.

‘‘We’re en­cour­ag­ing peo­ple to em­brace the spirit of the evening and dress up in Bavar­ian cos­tume.

‘‘There’ll be a great prize pack for the most im­pres­sive get-up, with the win­ner an­nounced at 8pm.’’

Up­dates to the feast will be posted on the Face­book event page.


This Thurs­day’s Food Truck Frenzy will bring a whol new al­fresco din­ing ex­pe­ri­ence to The Square.
