SHREWSBURY – Food Truck Thursdays returned to Shrewsbury Town Hall on May 18, drawing large crowds from around town.
The event, which first started during the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, returns for the third full year. Shishkaberry’s of New England, Moe’s Sweet Eats, Say Cheese!, and Potato Potato were this year’s first vendors.
The event started slow, but before long, scores of hungry customers formed impressive lines around the trucks. Many people decided to picnic, bringing blankets, lawn chairs, and umbrellas to the Town Hall’s front lawn.
People of all ages visited the food trucks. Families brought their young children to the event, while groups of middle schoolers took advantage of the beautiful weather and ran around the lawn after eating.
If community members missed the first Food Truck Thursday, there is no need to worry. The event will return to the Town Hall for the next 21 Thursday nights from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., running until October 12.
On July 13, the food trucks will head to Dean Park as part of the Recreation Department’s Concert in the Park series.
The food truck selection will change every week; find more information https://shrewsburyma.gov/DocumentCenter/View/14519/Food-Truck-Thursdays-2023-Schedule-PDF.
