Philadelphia Food Trucks Converge On Franklin Square For ‘Food Truck Festivus’

By Justin Udo

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – It was a “Food Truck Festivus” at Franklin Square Thursday.

A half dozen food trucks lined the sidewalks of Franklin Square serving everything from meatballs to ice cream.

“I have cheese curds with sriracha, mayo and a fresh made lemonade,” one person said.

“I got the pulled pork tacos from Oink and Moo BBQ,” another person said.

“I love food trucks, I love trying new food and this gives you the perfect opportunity to try a ton of food,” said another.

People came for the food, but many stayed for the pop-up beer garden and the free games.

“We have special games, volleyball, horseshoes croquet, bocce, just makes for a fun evening.”

If you missed this event at the Square, there’s no need to panic — they’ll be hosting a Labor Day celebration over the weekend.
