MARLBOROUGH – What would you like for Sunday dinner?

If you had gone to the Weed Street parking lot for the annual Food Truck and Arts Festival on Sept. 10, you would’ve had your choice of ribs, pizza, wings, Asian street food, grilled cheese sandwiches, potatoes and more.

There was also ice cream, Kona ice and cannolis for those wishing to partake of dessert.

For those trying to deal with the warm and sticky weather? Several vendors offered lemonade for sale, and there was a beer garden in one of the parking lots.

At one end of Main Street, the Marlborough Fire Department offered safety tips, little plastic fire helmets and oven mitts. Patriot Ambulance provided a vehicle for visitors to explore.

Alongside City Hall, the Department of Public Works provided vehicles for children to climb onto the driver’s seat and honk the horn.

The kids also had the chance to decorate the street with chalk courtesy of the Marlborough Cultural Council and check out some books courtesy of Word on the Street.

Several nonprofit organizations provided information on upcoming events. For example, the Marlborough Historical Society unveiled its 2024 calendar, featuring illustrious women in the city’s history. The Rotary Club had information about its recycling day on Sept. 30, and the 

The Allens kicked off the afternoon of live music with a set of classic rock, followed by Color Killer.

The event was hosted by WooTrucks and sponsored by the Marlborough Economic Development Committee. For information, visit
