The Food Truck Parks have a stream of exciting events running back-to-back over the next few months, keeping it fresh for regulars and visitors alike. There is sure to be a festival and menu to suit every palate.
At the Village Coburg Drive-in, the food trucks are a side order to the movies being shown on the outdoor screens. The perfect night out by anybody's standards. Gate and food trucks open at 5pm.
On Wednesday 13th July and Thursday 14th July at the Village Coburg Drive-in, food trucks such as Bites on Wheels, Real Burgers, Senor BBQ, Roadrunner Fried Chicken, Sweet Forbidden Journey, A Salted Squid, Dos Diablos and much more will be paired with movie, Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates on the Wednesday night, and 2D Ghostbusters on the Thursday.
Back to Preston on the weekend of 15th – 17th July and it's the Pizza & Pasta Weekend! In addition to a great selection of, obviously, pizza and pasta, you can take a pizza cooking class and enjoy a line-up of accompanying Italian movies playing all weekend on their big screen. Quench your thirst at the fully licensed Barry's Bar and prepare to bunk in for an evening of full-bellied fun.
Still in Preston, who's up for a little Bollywood with their Food Truck Fare? Well, best bring your dancing arms and wiggle your hips toward all things Bollywood on the weekend of 22nd – 24th July.
