With a "sort of" long weekend around the corner, the Bayside Food Truck Fiesta is on again. From Thursday 2 November to Tuesday 7 November 2017, around 25 food vendors will gather at Sir William Fry Reserve, 1150 Nepean Highway in Highett.
And where you find such a large gathering of food offerings, what else will you find? Hungry hoards of families and foodies.
Amongst the line-up will be Bomba Wood Fired Pizza; Road Runner Fried Chicken beep-beep, chicken schnitzels from Von Crumb, Toasta's tasty cheese toasties; Dos Diablos Mexican to add a bit of spice to your lives; Smoking Barry's slow-cooked barbeque,Mr Chows Asian street-style food and many more.
Just let your nose and tummy rumbles guide you - oh, and maybe wear elastic waisted pants.
If all that food wasn't enough, it wouldn't be a Fiesta without Espresso Martinis from Melbourne Martini. This year, you can try them on tap. Fully operational bars will also be serving up Furphy Beer, Pipsqueek cider, Smirnoff and plenty of other drink choices.
You'll also find market stalls, amusement rides, live music and entertainment. Come and explore the clothing, arts and crafts, jewellery and much more that will be on offer.
As well as bringing along your kids, grandparents, neighbours, distant cousins and friends, don't forget to bring along your four-legged friends. There will be a Pupper Appreciation Party - especially for your pooch, complete with pooch pampering and prizes. Leads please for pooches.
If it's a bit chilly as the sun goes down, don't worry there will be plenty of heaters positioned around all the bars and eating areas to keep you warm and toasty.
The festival will be open 5pm to 10pm on weekdays and 12pm to 10pm on the weekend.
