Kicking off this Thursday, November 2, the Bayside Food Truck Fiesta returns for its second year, offering to fill your Melbourne Cup long weekend with tasty eats, liquid treats and maybe even a few puppy pats.
Set to take over the Sir William Fry Reserve in Highett for six delicious days, the family-friendly festival will feature more than 25 of Melbourne's most popular food trucks, along with an espresso martini pop-up bar and a swag of market stalls, music and entertainment. This year's Bayside Food Truck Fiesta will also play host to its first-ever Pupper Appreciation Party (actual name) in conjunction with some Melbourne Cup celebrations on Tuesday, November 7. Four-legged friends can enjoy a spot of pampering and even strut their stuff in a doggy Fashions on the Field competition, while humans can catch the all-important horse racing action up on the big screen.
Food trucks confirmed for the weekend include TOASTA, Nuoc Mama's, Senor Churro, Dos Diablos, Yo India and Soul Kitchen Pizza Truck, and plenty more.
