Food truck tracker Dec. 30 – Jan. 5: New Year’s edition

WILMINGTON — The food truck tracker is a place to find where your favorite trucks will be this week. It lists events open to the public, not catering events for offices and private parties.

Some events are not scheduled until later in the week, so check back for updates!

It’s another week of celebration as we ring in a new year — and a new decade. With all that celebrating, some of our local food truckers will take the week off for some well earned time with family and friends.

It’s also worth remembering food trucks are usually at the mercy of the weather — check the link to the particular food truck before you head out, most post updates on their Facebook pages.

Want to see your favorite on this list? Run a food truck and want to be included? Let us know at pcd@localvoicemedia.com.
