Food Truck Throw Down This Weekend

Food Truck Foodies unite!  It’s a “Food Truck Throw Down” this Friday through Sunday in San Antonio  (July 29th – 31st) at  Boardwalk on Bulverde (preferred haunt of the Rickshaw Stop)!   All food is affordable and the entertainment won’t stop. We hear that 28 food trucks from all over the state will be there with cuisines as varied as the towns in Texas.

Here are a few of the regular food trucks at Boardwalk on Bulverde.

K-Hill BBQ

Rickshaw Stop

KC’s Cones

Watch for the Duk Truck (random rotating cuisine), Guilty Pleasures (comfort food) and Tapa Tapa (small plates, but especially fresh fruit with pop rocks) along with many others.

If you fall in love with Boardwalk on Bulverde, return for “family-friendly fun,” on Kid’s Movie Night each Thursday this summer. Friday and Saturday evenings include a DJ who brings the kids in on the musical fun, too.

*We recommend: 1) Evenings in the summer month, and 2) Sample a little of everything!

 

Texas FolkLife Festival

Whatever your family heritage is, it’s bound to be celebrated at the Texas Folklife Festival this coming weekend.

“The Texas Folklife Festival is the biggest cultural celebration in Texas! More than 40 different cultural groups in Texas are represented at the festival, and each year, more than 250 participants come together to celebrate their culture and heritage.” (quoted from the Folklife Festival website.)

Stop by the grounds of the Institute of Texan Cultures this weekend for this awesome annual event. Our state’s diversity and rich heritage are a matter of pride for us Texans, and you’ll have an opportunity to enjoy the food, music, dance, arts and crafts of a huge variety of ethnic groups.

Oh, and since we’re all about food at $5Dining, we’ll just mention there’ll be plenty of it there. How long has it been since you’ve tried a Baklava Sundae or Bratwurst on a Stick? The menu is seemingly endless!

A discount for advance ticket purchases is available. For advance ticket sale locations and prices click here.  Here’s how to get there. Not sure yet? Well, here’s a list of the events. We’ve ordered up a couple of rainless days for you, too. Have fun!
