Wishing you a lovely Sanford May weekend! (Did I mention, the weather is going to be gorgeous!!)

Surprise!! You may have this weekend marked for the monthly Food Truck Bazaar organized by The Daily City (first Saturday of every month), but as we learned from Paul Williams last month, there will be a huge change: the monthly Food Truck Bazaar will now be held every THIRD Saturday of the month and the location was moved to the corner of Palmetto & 2nd Street.

What that means to you? Well, from now on Sanford is going to have the best Food Truck Bazaar in Central Florida! To say it with Paul’s words, “You get to enjoy alcoholic beverages, have a place to sit and enjoy your food and drink, have bathrooms to use, enjoy live entertainment and most of all, be right in the heart of the city to go enjoy all the splendor that Sanford has to offer!
We can’t wait!! So mark your calendars for Saturday, May 16th, from 5-8pm and see you there!!
