City Approves June 6th Food Truck and Music on Montrose Move to City Hall Park
The Clermont City Council has approved the relocation of the First Friday Family Food Truck event on June 6th, 2014, from Minneola Street to the new City Hall Park at the corner of West Montrose Street and 7th Street. As the 2nd Anniversary Celebration of Food Trucks in Historic Downtown Clermont, the dining experience event will also introduce "Music On Montrose" as free entertainment for one and all. The popular Blues Reaper will perform from 6pm - 9pm from the top steps of City Hall above the grassy lawn. "Be sure to bring your lawn chair or blankets and enjoy some great blues," says Ron Smart, president of the Clermont Downtown Partnership, the event's host organization. The City also approved the Park as an "open container area" for this event. As such, adults may purchase alcoholic beverages from licensed retailers, Bacchus Vino and Vineyards of World, for consuming within the designated Food Truck serving area. "We are pleased that the 2nd Anniversary celebration of our Food Trucks will be at this new park in Historic Downtown Clermont," states Smart. "It's the perfect setting for families and friends to enjoy an evening eating gourmet food, listening to some great Blues and visiting with friends and neighbors." Smart says that there will be at least ten gourmet Food Trucks serving their specialties. "Many chefs have loyal followers from across Central Florida, keeping up with who, where, when via Twitter and Facebook. It's a big social thing...and the food is delicious. You never know who you'll meet at Food Trucks." Food Trucks will serve from 5:30pm - 9:00pm. Meals are individually prepare to order.
