Miami-Dade Park and Recreation Department to Feature New Gourmet Food Trucks at Haulover Park's Bill Bird Marina

(Miami-Dade County, FL) -- 
For foodies craving an ocean view along with delicious eats, the Miami-Dade Park and Recreation Department (MDPR) announces the arrival of gourmet food trucks to Bill Bird Marina at Haulover Park.  Just in time for the Easter holiday weekend, when families flock to Haulover for reunions and recreation, the popular food truck will be welcome patrons from 11:00 a.m. to sundown, April 23-April 24.

Haulover Park and Marina offer fun activities for all ages.  Bring along a blanket or some lawn chairs and make a day of it. Take in some sun beachside, try kite-flying with the folks at Skyward Kites, or get your "catch of the day" on a deep sea fishing excursion, as daily charters are available at the park's marina.

The gourmet food trucks will be a permanent weekend feature at the park, and they'll be open from 11:00 a.m. to sundown. A variety of foods will be available to purchase. Participating food trucks include Jefe's Original Taco and Burgers, Miso Hungry, Divan Bakery, Wrapidito Yum, and Rolling Stove.

Bill Bird Marina at Haulover Park is located at 10800 Collins Ave., Miami. Parking will be available at the Haulover Park's kite field entrance. For directions and further information about this event, please call Haulover Park at 305-947-3525.
