Union Point is the newly renovated community located in South Weymouth right inside of the former Naval Air Station. We were invited by Lola Grace Events to check out their Food Truck Rodeo a few weeks ago and we quickly became HUGE fans. You already know our love for food (especially food trucks) so this event quickly became a #BALMfave.
We weren’t sure what to expect with the crowds, but we were lucky enough to score a picnic table for the night- literally front and center to the stage with live music. We grabbed some beers and sangria that they had for purchase and made our way around to the food trucks. Over 20 of Boston’s best trucks were there – Captain Marden’s Seafood, Dragon Roll Sushi, Stoked Wood Fire Pizza, Ben & Jerry’s, etc. etc. (see below for just a glimpse of what we tried). We were so overwhelmed (in the best way possible) by all the choices- there was truly something for every kind of tastebud. One of our favorites was the Kona Shaved Ice truck where you can put on your own flavors- so fun for summer!
Don’t feel like spending a ton of money but still wanna hang with your squad? Grab a beach chair and spend your summer Fridays at the Food Truck Rodeo. While walking around the grounds we were eyeing lots of large groups who brought their own chairs and picnic blankets (genius) and got cozy on the lawn. This is seriously a great spot to come with some friends/family and a game plan! It’s completely affordable and you’re bound to make everyone happy. I mean, a night filled with good eats, a bar, games like can jam and corn hole, and ample parking – no brainer right?!
The next Food Truck Rodeo is on Friday, September 9th and don’t forget to check out their Farmer’s market with local vendors every Sunday! Click here for more information on Union Point community and events or follow them on IG @UnionPointMA and @LolaGraceEvents.
