Taco 'bout some food trucks
August 4, 2022 at 5:26 a.m.
Jennifer Lane resident Jonathan Bergman, 4, chows down on a delicious treat—a scoop of vanilla from Bona Bona Ice Cream—during the Food Truck Event at Pine Ridge Park on Saturday, July 30. His 7-year-old sister Abigail prepares to have her face cleaned by their mother, Samantha, after she devoured her own cone.
Dozens of families stand in line for the seven food trucks stationed along Latonia Road. The vendors sell an assortment of foods from hotdogs, burgers and ice cream to lobster rolls, Italian ice and tacos.
Rye Brook resident Hudson Kaplan is ready for adventure, but bounce houses are scary places for 4-year-olds. He looks inside, swallows his nerves and prepares to jump his little heart out.
In a display of pure athleticism, Port Chester 11-year-old Fabio Garcia pitches a whiffle ball during a children’s game on one of the Pine Ridge Park baseball fields. The Glen Avenue resident is observed by teammate Tariq Williams, 8, of Berkley Lane.
With all the might a 4-year-old can muster, Charlie Karasik attempts to hit the whiffle ball during the children’s game. Older teammates encourage the Loch Lane resident from the sidelines.
High Point Circle resident Noah Hashimoto, 6, patiently waits to get instantly cool as a volunteer administers a temporary arm tattoo. Body art booths were a staple of the Food Truck Event this year.
There is likely no one who enjoys food trucks more than dogs. Relishing in the afternoon with her pups, Crossway resident Debby Yablow feeds one of her pooches, Demi, a piece of pizza.
A bean bag connects with 8-year-old Eli Hazan’s eager, open hands. But someone might want to tell the Brush Hollow Lane resident that cornhole doesn’t usually involve catching the sack.
Blind Brook High School rising senior Thomas Wemm stretches out his hands, ready to catch the fly ball that will spell an out against speedy Fabio Garcia, who has already blasted past him to first base.
Up to bat for his team, 6-year-old Harrison Feldberg’s eyes are on the soaring whiffle ball flying right at him. Does the Edgewood Drive resident have what it takes to hit a home run?
Elica Hashimoto, 3, observes a cracker her caretaker Asako Kusaka bought her from a nearby food truck. The two High Point Circle residents take a rest on a hot day to lounge in the shade.
