Bermuda’s longest running food truck run by DeGraff’s, will be one, in a long line of culinary professionals offering good eats in the second annual Food Truck Festival on Sunday.
City bound motorists, especially foodies are advised to take note of the road restrictions that will be in place to facilitate the event.
Pitts Bay Road between Bermudiana Road and Woodbourne Avenue will be closed to traffic on Sunday, November 5th, to make way for this event.
The foodie event gets underway at 1pm and will run through to 12 midnight.
Motorists parking on Pitts Bay Road should ensure their vehicles are moved before midnight Saturday, November 4th; otherwise the vehicles will be towed.
All traffic travelling on Pitts Bay Road towards Hamilton will be diverted via Woodbourne Avenue, Gorham Road and Par-la-Ville Road. Traffic travelling away from Hamilton will be diverted via Bermudiana Road, Gorham Road and Woodbourne Avenue.
A spokesperson for the Ministry of Public Works also thanked Bermuda’s motoring public in advance for their cooperation.
The BTA introduced the Bermuda Food Truck Festival in October last year to highlight Bermuda’s food culture.
BTA Chief Product and Experience Development Officer Pat Phillip-Fairn said turnout for the inaugural event last year was “very strong”.
“Every food truck operator enjoyed a busy day of sales. We were delighted with the response and we have paved the way for smart growth this year by adding new outlets and a new location,” she said.
She also noted that the new location provides a harbourside city park, where local entertainers are scheduled to perform. The event is co-sponsored by the City of Hamilton.
