Burlington Food Truck Festival

40 food trucks circled Spencer Smith Park for 3 days of music, fun and lots of culinary choices. Burlington's waterfront also features a children's midway and cold beer from July 20 to 22, 2018.

Ann and I started in Hamilton and biked their magnificent multi-use path towards Burlington's less than spectacular path along the way we were distracted by Great Lake steamers moving into and out of Hamilton Bay. Arriving at the Food Truck Festival we checked out the free midway and entered the fenced in festival area, also free with voluntary donation to Sick Kids Hospital.

It was hard to choose which food truck to visit as there were so many but we finally settled on some delightful perogies and enjoyed the band playing on the stage.

We tried to bike further along Burlington's lake front but the trail ends just past the wharf at the end of Brant Street. So we dropped into a former Brampton Keg friend from the past - Troy Smith, who owns the cheese, charcuterie and pantry shop called THE BLOCK CO at 395 John Street, Burlington.

See more of our fun day along the edge of Lake Ontario after the jump.
