A perfect way to spend a Saturday afternoon is outside, eating tons of food, and having fun with the community. Last weekend Marlborough hosted a food truck festival on Main Street. The smells at the festival were highly enticing! There were also local vendors there including Rocco's donuts, a fudge company, a great local soap company...and the MEDC also made an appearance. There were a number of great food trucks there including Sabor La Tino, Kona Ice, and The DogFather. Some of our favorite snacks were the Kona Shaved ice and we loved the chilli dog by The DogFather.
