Those enjoying the fun at Ladner Pioneer May Days will have plenty of options when it comes to grabbing a bite to eat at the fairgrounds this weekend.
Organizers are really excited about this year’s food trucks for May Days, says food coordinator Khya Fellingham.
Many of the traditional trucks are returning, including Hunky Bill’s Ukrainian food, The Crazy Italian, The Praguery, Mario’s Kitchen with its ice cream truck, Dim Sum Express, Lemon Heaven and Gordo’s Concession with its mini donuts.
New this year is Tin Lizzy’s grilled cheese and poutine, Trio’s Truck Extreme mac & cheese truck as well as Dairy Queen, which will be serving up its famous Dilly Bars.
Other favourites include Meat2EatCatering featuring Mediterranean food and wraps and the Corndog trailer.
“We strive each year to offer a variety of cuisines and pack as many trucks in as possible to give attendees their food of choice,” says Fellingham. “Many of them come back time and time again because they love the crowds and love the event.”
She says the food truck craze helps organizers ensure there’s a variety of options to satisfy all tastes.
“I started booking food trucks 18 years ago and there wasn’t a lot of them then, but now there are so many options out there,” she says.
There will also be a pancake breakfast on Sunday from 8 a.m. to noon at the Memorial Park gazebo thanks to the North Delta Lions Club.
The Happy Pioneer Watering Hole beer garden, put on by the Ladner Legion, goes from noon to 6 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday at the pickleball court.
