There aren’t many things we Pittsburghers love more than booze, sunshine and food. So why not combine all three? Saturday, May 21st, Pittsburgh City Paper, Q92.9 FM, BOB FM and GoodTaste! Pittsburgh team up to bring the food-truck event you will not want to miss!

Food Truck-a-Palooza will feature a variety of food trucks from all around the area. The line-up will feature the best food on wheels ranging from ice pops to meatballs. Attendees will also get a chance to vote for their favorite food truck.

Come party at the Pump House and enjoy a cold Blue Moon and live music from We The Kings and Matt Scannell, lead singer of Vertical Horizon. Plus, local bands Bill Ali Band, Kung Fu Radio and Amber Alexis. The event will take place rain or shine, so get ready to eat, drink and be merry!

Ten bucks gets you admission to the event, live entertainment and one complimentary Blue Moon or beverage. Children 12-and-under get in for free. A portion of proceeds from the event will go to Animal Friends. Spread the word and bring your friends!

So what’s there to think about? Tickets are limited, see you there!
