This weekend, the parking lot at Old Navy in Kittery is going to smell really good.
Saturday and Sunday at the Kittery Premium Outlets, there's more going on than great deals on name brands. There's a food truck festival! Not just a food truck festival, but the Great New England Food Truck Festival!
SATURDAY, Sept 3 from 11 am - 6 pm there will be axe throwing, more than a dozen food trucks, yard games, face painting, caricature drawing, a free bounce house, a kid zone with free chalk and bubbles, live music, 7 cold craft local beers, cocktails and all sorts of vendors. Even door prizes with $100 cash on the line!
Then on Sunday, September 4, the fun continues but it ends at 4 pm. Tickets are only $5 and work for both days and kids 10 and under get in free. If you want to skip the line, you can get tickets in advance. The best part is that there is plenty of free parking and it all benefits local middle school lacrosse teams!
If you are looking for something fun, cheap, and tasty to do this long holiday weekend, this sounds perfect! Plus, it's something for the whole family. Let the little ones get their endless energy out in the free bounce house and you meander over to the beer garden.
Nothing beats food from a truck. I'm obsessed with food trucks and have been ever since I had them back in the 80s in Los Angeles. Those weren't your typical food trucks, but more the lunch trucks that hung out near businesses. I loved them. Now you can get damn near anything from a truck. and this weekend, do some outlet shopping too!
