State Representative Shawn Dooley (R-Norfolk), along with several local businesses, is pleased to announce the First Annual Fall Food Truck Festival. The event will take place at Lake Pearl Wrentham (formerly Lake Pearl Luciano’s), 299 Creek St., on Thursday, September 13 from 5:30 to 9 p.m.
All proceeds from the event will benefit the Random Smile Project and the Santa Foundation. Both charities focus all their efforts on helping those in need in surrounding communities.
Tickets are $20 for adults (sample offerings from each of the food trucks) and $10 for children 13 and under (sample offerings from 3 trucks).
Tickets can be purchased at or at Lake Pearl on the day of event until sold out. Space is limited to 350 people.
Food trucks include GottaQ Smokehouse BBQ, Atomic Blonde Ice Cream, Juliana’s Italian Catering, Paco’s Tacos, and Ming’s Asian Street Food. Live music will be provided by local band The Pushbuttons.
“My mantra has always been, ‘Service with a Smile,’” said Dooley. “This event is about giving back and helping to put a smile on someone else’s face. I hope we get a huge crowd for this fun-filled evening and really support these great causes!”
Dooley went on to add, “Our goal is to have this be an annual event, bringing in more and more trucks and have it be the signature charity fundraiser for our community.”
Corporate sponsors include Subaru of New England, DiPlacido Development Corporation, The Preserve at Mill Pond, Plumb House, Inc., Glen Meadow Apartments, and BIG Septic Services.
Dooley represents the 9th Norfolk District, which includes the towns of Norfolk, Plainville, Wrentham, Medfield, Millis, and Walpole.
