PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Some of your favorite restaurants and food trucks have set up shop at Penn’s Landing this weekend for the annual Taste of Philadelphia event.
And there’s plenty of entertainment, while you’re sampling those dishes.
Fans of the latest in food options are licking their chops because food trucks are lining the Chestnut Street Bridge.
Restaurants are on the Great Plaza, where folks like George Reilly of the Twisted Tail on Headhouse Square are serving up dishes.
“[We are] grilling our sweet corn on the cob, our house-made pork and bourbon sausages, chicken skewers and grilled asparagus,” says Reilly.
It’s free to get in, which includes all musical performances, and food offerings are all pay-as-you go, patrons only need to buy tickets to spend on the food of their choice with prices running generally between $1-$5.
The festival’s musical headliner Saturday evening at 8 p.m. is Marsha Ambrosius at the River Stage at Great Plaza.
A fireworks show will light up the sky above the Delaware River at about 9:30 p.m. after her performance.
