Food trucks at Feast-ival

A free autumn-themed community event organized by the Meadowridge Parent’s Guild

Meadowridge School will be hosting a unique celebration of food as a warm welcome to the school year that is guaranteed to tickle everyone’s taste buds.

Feast-ival, a free autumn-themed community event organized by the Meadowridge Parent’s Guild, will feature five popular Vancouver-area food trucks that will make up an area called Eat Street.

“The Welcome Back Fair is a long standing tradition at Meadowridge School,” said staff liaison Kalie Whitaker.

“Typically we host this family fun event at the beginning of the school year to welcome students back to the school and the parents back to the community,” she said.

Food trucks to attend: Tacofino, offering fresh Baja-inspired tacos; Re-Up BBQ, a vendor dedicated to American cuisine and southern barbecue; Holy Perogy, offering gourmet perogies; Blue Smoke BBQ,  masters of the art of smoking meat; and Hunger Management, a food truck based out of Maple Ridge, offering creative grilled sandwiches and more for every palette.

“Who doesn’t love a food truck? And for those of us who can’t ever get out of Maple Ridge, how great is this,” asked Whitaker.

The Haney Farmer’s Market will be also be on hand with vendors selling a variety of goods, including fresh produce, homemade preserves and natural products.

Tea and scones will be served for a traditional afternoon tea at the British Invasion Pavilion.

The Lordco Refreshment Patio will have homemade apple pies and cool beverages.

There will also be an adult patio.

Fifty different cakes will be given away during an old-fashioned Cake Walk contest. Like musical chairs, contestants will stand on numbers instead. When the music stops the person standing on the winning number will receive a cake.

There will be plenty of activities for children, including carnival games like sack and three-legged races and an obstacle course, as well as pony rides, a ball-hockey tournament, the B.C. Road Safe Family Fun Zone, the Castle Fun Park Putting Contest and a memory-making photo booth.

Prizes will be given away every 15 minutes with 50/50 draws and a raffle for five prizes including a beauty basket, a Thanksgiving basket, a weekend away in Vancouver values at $2,000, a wine rack filled with bottles of wine and a barbecue and wine fridge.

Tickets for the raffle will be $20 for five tickets.

Entertainment will be provided by Jack FM.

Money raised from the event will be going back to the parent’s guild and will go to offset the costs of field trips and outdoor education, purchasing new books for the library and physical education equipment and enhancing programs at the school.
