Trop Club & Casino – On October 25 and 26, the island’s top food trucks will once again be serving up their favorite dishes and duking it out for the title of Best Food Truck on the Island, during the 2nd annual Battle of the Food Trucks, on the parking lot in front of Trop Club & Casino.
This year, Trop Club & Casino has teamed up with Presidente Beer and Coca Cola to bring back the two-night mega event, which attracted huge crowds last year.
Last year’s winner, Tia Rosa, will be defending her title of Food Truck Champ against competitors including Piet Super Snack Truck, the Hollywood Smokehouse, Gio JJ Burger, Ricuras, Chalo Burger, Il Buongusto, Candela Grill, Cocolishi Street Food, and many more. Aside from the prestigious title, over 5,000 Florins in prize money will be up for grabs. A panel of three local and international celebrities will be in charge of picking the ultimate winners.
To get everyone hyped up, some of the island’s best musical bands will also be performing. Bands including Youth Extreme, Rincon Boyz, Ezequiel Anthony and Esquema, Le Groove, Upgrade Music, Sonic Lab, Claudius Philips and his band OREO, and Honey Pot will have everyone swaying their hips and dancing along, as they sample the offerings from the competing food trucks.
In between supporting your favorite food truck, don’t forget to check out the domino tournament and the Harley Davidson show. An entire area of the event will be dedicated to entertaining the little ones, with a bouncy castle, popcorn, cotton candy, ice cream, shaved ice and much more. Kids are encouraged to come dressed up in costumes on the 26th, so that they can go Trick or Treating at the event, and win prizes for the Halloween best costumes. There will also be prizes for the adults with the best Halloween costumes.
The Battle of the Food Trucks will take place on Friday, October 25, from 6pm to 11pm, and on Saturday, October 26, from 6pm to 1am. All funds raised will go to the Koningin Wilhelmina Cancer Fund, which has been raising awareness and helping cancer patients and their families for over 50 years.
If last year’s battle was any indication, this year’s Battle of the Food Trucks once again promises to be a showdown of epic and tasty proportions!
