Food truck events
Forget bikini season. Summer in the Sunshine State is not about lying out in the scorching sun. It’s about finding things to do that help us stay sane, beat the heat and bide our time until September.
Summer is, therefore, perfect for food truck fare. It’s also good for drinking, so sip your summer blues away while pub-crawling through the season. Or for picking up a new pastime – stay cool while watching the competition heat up
at a Florida League baseball or Orlando City soccer game.
In the following pages, we’ve compiled lists of food truck events, spectator sports and pub crawls to help you stay busy ’til fall.
