Come out for Palm Coast’s Food Truck Tuesday from 5-8 p.m. Nov. 15, and support the Palm Coast Volunteer Fire Department’s fire prevention programs. This month will be the final Food Truck Tuesday of the 2016 season, so don’t miss it!
Food Truck Tuesdays are held on the third Tuesday of each month from March through November, along Park Street next to Central Park in Town Center. The address of Central Park is 975 Central Ave., Palm Coast.
Each Food Truck event features free entertainment and about a dozen food trucks – mobile kitchens, canteens and catering trucks that offer up gourmet foods including appetizers, main dishes, side dishes and desserts. Many menus are kid-friendly.
Proceeds this month will go to the Volunteer Fire Department, and the volunteers will have the hands-on Fire Safety Trailer at the event for kids of all ages to explore! The Fire Department also plans to have a woods truck on display. The money raised will go toward handouts and give-aways (including adorable fire helmets) designed to reinforce fire prevention lessons provided to children at schools, churches, local businesses and City events.
The Palm Coast Volunteer Fire Department has more than 50 members who handle several responsibilities. Volunteer firefighters are based at three of Palm Coast’s five fire stations, and volunteers respond to fire calls to supplement the career firefighting crews, provide stand-by when the career firefighters are especially busy such as during a storm or large incident, and operate woods trucks during wildfires. The volunteers also assist with hydrating firefighters during lengthy firefighting operations.
The Fire Police provide scene safety and traffic control, primarily for automobile accidents. They manage helicopter landing zones for Fire Flight and other trauma helicopters. The Fire Police respond to about 1,400 calls per year.
The Fire Associates provide administrative support and assist with the City’s battery recycling program. The Volunteer Fire Department also puts on the City’s patriotic ceremonies at Heroes Memorial Park.
The food trucks signed up for November include: Personal Chef, Woodson’s Wrap Shack, Arrested Appetite, Big Kahuna Kettle Corn, Kona Ice of Flagler County, The Good Food Truck, Bruster’s/Nathan’s, Magic4urPalate, Monsta Lobsta, El Cubanito Subs, Flaming Pizza, Snowie Bus, and Barnwood Bar-B-Que.
Food Truck Tuesdays is presented by the City of Palm Coast Parks & Recreation Department. For more information, call 386-986-2323 or visitwww.palmcoastgov.com/foodtruck.
