(FALL RIVER, MA- May 4, 2022)- The Office of Mayor Paul Coogan has announced that the City of Fall River will be partnering with local event organizer PVD Food Truck Events to bring free food truck nights to the Gates of the City at Fall River’s waterfront.
The event series, called Fall River Food Trucks at the Gates, will consist of three Thursday night events starting at 5pm on June 2nd, July 7th and September 1st.
According to the Mayor’s Office, plans include a rotating group of over a dozen food trucks, live music, and beer and wine supplied by Troy City Brewery, Primo Catering and Gooseneck Vineyards.
The City will be closing a portion of Ponta Delgada Boulevard and Water Street to provide more space for the event.
Guests are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or blankets to enjoy the food and music on the grassy area around the Gates.
“We are thrilled that PVD Food Truck Events has chosen Fall River as their newest location,” said Mayor Paul E. Coogan. “Not only will these events provide some family fun for our residents, they will also introduce visitors from across Southern New England to Fall River’s waterfront. Our hope is that residents and visitors alike will come down to the Gates, enjoy local food and beer, and explore Fall River’s growing waterfront.”
The Mayor’s Office stated that Fall River Food Trucks at the Gates will be PVD Food Truck Events first event series in Massachusetts. Since 2015, the group, led by organizer Eric Weiner, has planned food truck events in communities across Rhode Island, often drawing crowds of over a thousand guests.
“It is always refreshing when we have an opportunity to work with a city that is excited and engaged in bringing in our community events,” remarked Eric Weiner, owner of PVD Food Truck Events. “We cannot wait to spend some summer evenings hanging out and introducing the residents of Fall River to our food truck events, while introducing others from local communities to the Fall River waterfront.”
Food trucks already licensed in the City of Fall River have been contacted by PVD Food Trucks to participate. Any licensed trucks looking to participate in this summer’s events should contact Eric Weiner at email@example.com.
