We really live in the lucky state at the moment and what better way to celebrate spring than with tasty food in some of Perth's most beautiful parks. That's right – no cooking and no dishes to worry about, and if you plan your weekend cleverly, you can hop from event to event!
Run by Big Kid Events, the Food Truck Fiestas will be taking place across the city in the coming months. Help support local small businesses and have a night of fun at your local park in Wembley, City Beach, Lake Monger and Floreat. Read on for all the dates and details.
Catering for special dietary requirements At each of the Food Truck Fiesta events, the organisers ensure there are a wide range of cuisines including some who offer special dietary options for vegan, vegetarian, nut-free, halal, dairy-free and gluten-free and fussy-kid. I just made that last one up, but as long as one truck has chips, you should be fine!
