PASADENA, CA – On February 27, 2011, the Junior League of Pasadena will be hosting its 2nd annual Community Expo and 5K, 10K, Kid’s K race. The purpose of the event is to celebrate local non-profit organizations with family friendly races and community booths for promotion of volunteerism. This year’s event will also feature the new family friendly way of eating that has been sweeping Southern California: Gourmet Food Trucks.
Gourmet Food Trucks serving at the Community Expo include: Lobsta Truck, Nom Nom, Coolhaus, Frysmith, Boba and Lardon. Lobsta Truck offers a whole new level to food truck mania with its New England style selections of lobster rolls and clam chowder. Nom Nom, well know for their involvement in Food Network’s “Great Foodtruck Race” offers Vietnamese fare including Banh Mi sandwiches and Vietnamese tacos. Coolhaus is guaranteed to be a hit amongst the kids as the upgraded neighborhood ice cream truck, serving a menu of cookies and ice cream flavors combined to make its customer’s perfect ice cream sandwich. Frysmith introduces a new level to fusion comfort food, with its variety of unusual toppings on french fries such as the Kimchi fries served with Kobuta pork belly, onion and cheddar cheese. The Boba truck brews up a unique tea menu that ensures you are drinking the freshest possible tea with all the flavors and anti-oxidants intact. The Lardon truck is dedicated solely to the glory of bacon with specialties such as Bacon pancakes and Lark brownies topped with a bacon-Nutella sauce. Other trucks have yet to be announced.
Admission into the food truck ring will be free for all participants registered in the 5/10K or Kid’s K. A $5 donation towards admission is asked of those not participating in the races. All proceeds benefit the Junior League of Pasadena community programs. Admittance will be limited and tickets are now being pre-sold at www.myjlp.com. Additional cost of food applies.
