City of Fall River Partners with PVD Food Truck Events for Free Summer Series of Food Trucks – Fall River Reporter

(FALL RIVER, MA – May 4, 2022) – Mayor Paul Coogan’s Office announced that the City of Fall River will be partnering with local event organizer PVD Food Truck Events to host free food truck parties at city ​​gates to Fall River Waterfront.

The series of events, called Fall River Food Trucks at the Gates, will consist of three events on Thursday evenings starting at 5 p.m. on June 2, July 7 and September 1.

According to the mayor’s office, plans include a rotating group of more than a dozen food trucks, live music, and beer and wine provided by Troy City Brewery, Primo Catering and Gooseneck Vineyards.

The City will close part 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 food and music on the lawn around the gates.

“We are thrilled that PVD Food Truck Events has chosen Fall River as its new location,” said Mayor Paul E. Coogan. “Not only will these events provide family fun for our residents, but they will also introduce visitors to southern New England to the Fall River waterfront. We hope residents and visitors will come to the gates, sample local food and beer, and explore the growing Fall River waterfront.

The mayor’s office said Fall River Food Trucks at the Gates will be PVD Food Truck Events’ first series of events in Massachusetts. Since 2015, the group, led by organizer Eric Weiner, has planned food truck events in Rhode Island communities, often drawing crowds of over a thousand guests.

“It’s always refreshing to have the opportunity to work with an enthusiastic and committed city to host our community events,” said Eric Weiner, owner of PVD Food Truck Events. “We look forward to spending a few summer evenings hanging out and introducing Fall River residents to our food truck events, while introducing other 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. All authorized trucks wishing to participate in this summer’s events should contact Eric Weiner at [email protected]
