This place is rockin! The Food Truck Carnival is making itself at home at the Caribbean Gardens for the FIRST Knox Carnival and is buzzing with FLAVA! Trucks of every persuasion have surrounded the space at the Stud Road end of the Gardens and it simply smells amazing. You can travel the world via your paper plate if you wished with so much variety on offer. Entry is free (although it is $2 to park - so get the coins ready) and there is a pirate ship, laughing clowns and some other fairground rides to explore as well. There is a great vibe inside the park and a great family event. The next one is in Berwick - 16th - 19th March.
Mamma's lil tips:
- as silly as it might sound - avoid meal times and make it a late afternoon activity. We arrived at 6:30 and by the time we left at 7:45 the grounds had met capacity and there was a line of people waiting to get in. The earlier the BETTER! There was a decent walk from the car too, so the pram might be your best bet.
- bring a picnic blanket. There is space to relax, nibble on the tasty treats and listen to the music. There is extra lounging space behind the trucks towards the lake if you need more room, especially when the lines for food build up.
- try something different for your meal! There is so much variety that you may as well tuck into something a little outside the norm. We tested out the taco selection from La Revolucion and some street pork skewers from Thrilla in Manila! YUMMO!
