Greenway Mobile Food Fest Coming to Boston, May 5, 2012
A food festival that was supposed to be held on the Rose Kennedy Greenway in downtown Boston last fall--only to be canceled due to the Occupy Boston encampment at the same site--is planning to give it another go next month.
The Boston Globe is reporting that the Mobile Food Fest will take place on Saturday, May 5 from 11:30 AM to 7:00 PM at Dewey Square Park (across from South Station). The event will feature more than 20 local food trucks and carts as well as a cook-off, music, and children's activities. A canned food drive that supports the Greater Boston Food Bank will also take place at the festival. The event is free and open to the public.
The Mobile Food Fest had been scheduled for October 15, 2011 at the same site, but an ongoing series of demonstrations by Occupy Boston led to the Rose Kennedy Greenway Conservancy deciding to postpone the event.
