On select Tuesdays, historic Milton keeps on Truckin’

MILTON – Every second and fourth Tuesday evening this summer, a convoy of food trucks will pull into Milton’s historic town center for Truckin’ Tuesday – a program designed to attract visitors to the community’s rapidly changing commercial core.

“We’re very excited about this project,” noted Lisa Sumstine, Executive Director of the Milton Chamber of Commerce, which is sponsoring the series.  “Milton’s history and small town charm practically beg you to walk around and explore. There’s no better way to do that than with a portable meal from a food truck.”

A variety of foods will be offered, ranging from Indonesian delicacies to traditional summer burgers and dogs.

The twice-monthly event will take place from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on the grounds of the Lydia B. Cannon Museum at the corner of Union and Magnolia Streets and will include live music and Milton’s own Dogfish Head Brewery beers.

The Tuesday June 23 event includes the following trucks: Big Thunder Roadside Kitchen, Maxie’s Grill, The Sea Hog from Zoggs, Mr. BBQ, Blazing Grill, Jakartas Indonesian, A’Latte Soul and Kona Ice.

Music will be provided by Matt Lafferty and beer from Dogfish Head Brewery.  Celebrity bartenders for the evening are the Techno Goobers.

Truckin’ Tuesday, which began June 9, will be held June 23, July 14, July 28, Aug. 11, and  Aug. 25.
