Lots of food trucks roll into Shelton’s Riverwalk

Food Trucks in the Valley will take place Thursday, Sept. 18 from 4–8 p.m. at the Shelton Riverwalk (Veterans Memorial Park).

The event will benefit the Parent Child Resource Center (PCRC), which provides programs and services for children and families in the Lower Naugatuck Valley, including Shelton.

At least a dozen food trucks will participate, including those with healthy options. There also will be music, family and children’s activities, specialty drinks and beer.

Admission is free, with 10% of proceeds from each vendor going to the PCRC.

WPLR-FM will be present from 5–7 p.m., with the radio station’s tent, table, music and goodies.

The event will be centered in the Rotary Pavilion along the Housatonic River, near Cornell Street in downtown Shelton. Rain date is Sept. 23.
