LB Street Food Fest – truckin’ back to the LBC
2010-10-01 · By Editor
The gourmet food trucks are returning to Long Beach by popular demand! It was clear with the overwhelming success of Long Beach’s first street food festival in July that participants and attendees alike wanted a second helping. On October 9, 2010, LA and Orange County’s preeminent mobile eateries will once again roll in to scenic Rainbow Lagoon Park serving their delectable fare.
The Long Beach Street Food Festival “Truckin’ back to the LBC” will feature more than 25 of Southern California’s favorite gourmet food trucks, a beer garden and rockin’ live entertainment! Many of these trucks attract rock star followings, thanks in part to the latest Food Network hit “The Great Food Truck Race”. The Nom Nom Truck will make an appearance along with Crepes Bonaparte, and Nana Queens.
You may want to try a Banh Mi sandwich from the Nom Nom Truck, or a crisp and gooey grilled cheese “Smoky Melt” with Gouda, bacon and tomatoes from the #1 Truck in LA, The Grilled Cheese Truck? How about an order of “Fish N’ Grapes”- Deep-fried Alaskan Cod tossed with Fresh Grape Salad from the Komodo Truck. Whether your palate leans toward a pizza slice from the Slice Truck or “Korean pub grub” from the Ahn-Joo Truck inspired by Chef/Owner of Debbie Lee, you will be tempted to try them all. But leave room for dessert because there will be famous Coolhaus ice cream sandwiches, Del’s Lemonade and Sweet’s Truck red velvet cupcakes.
The 2nd street food festival rolls into Rainbow Lagoon Park on October 9, 2010 with doors up from 10:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Tickets are $6 per person in advance ($8 at the gate). For more information and to purchase tickets, visit the Long Beach Street Foodfest website. You may also follow the event on Facebook and Twitter.
The Festival is organized by the Long Beach Junior Chamber of Commerce Charitable Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Ticket proceeds from the event benefit the Adopt-A-Teacher program. This program provides grants to local teachers to pay for unreimbursed classroom supplies which the districts no longer provide.
