One of the best things about summer in New York City is the multitude of outdoor events to choose from. Prospect Park Food Truck Rallies are recurring events that feature some of New York’s finest food trucks.
Food rallies will be held on the third Sunday of every month from 11am-5pm, beginning this April 15th, and continuing until October. These rallies are organized by the New York City Food Truck Association and the park itself, as a way to bring more people to Grand Army Plaza. Following the success of last year’s food truck rallies, the trucks participating will vary by month.
Eugene Patron, a park spokesman said “It was just so popular last time. There were huge lines, even on a cold, wet day, people were just really into it.”
Although the trucks pay a fee to attend the events, the fees go mostly toward clean-up and other administrative costs. The food truck rallies are not necessarily huge money makers, but they provide publicity and entertainment, featuring different bands each Sunday.
2012’s first Prospect Park Food Truck Rally will kick off this Sunday, at 11am.
