Ponce Food Truck Fest Monthly Event

Are you traveling to Puerto Rico?  Thinking about it?  Do you like food?  Do you like Free Entertainment?  If you answered YES to at least one (of course you did), then I have an event for you!

Every month the city of Ponce, on the Southern coast of Puerto Rico, host a huge Food Truck Festival!  There are musicians, performers, and entertainment, children’s play area, great people watching, and FOOD!

The event is held in a local park (Parque Dora Colon Clavell) in the heart of Ponce, just off of the the 52 highway.  The streets directly around the park are closed to vehicle traffic, and cars are directed to nearby parking, then just follow the music to the event.  It is well organized and safe. FTF_Busy Trucks
