The annual Southwest Waterfront Fireworks Festival is only three days away and preparations are underway along the waterfront for the day-long event. Above is a map of the venues involved with the festival, which stretches along Water Street for three blocks from 6th Street to 9th Street. I wrote about the events planned at the festival last week, but below is some additional information:
Several food trucks will be on hand at Kastles Stadium, including Fojol Brothers, Red Hook Lobster Pound, TaKorean, DC Slices, Cap Mac, Sidewalk Sweetsations, Goode's Mobile Kitchen, and Tasty Kabob. Lincoln is a sponsor of the food truck area at the stadium and will be giving out a four-pack of $5 coupons for use exclusively at the food trucks for anyone who test drives a Lincoln. The food truck area will be open from 1pm - 8:30pm.
The latest weather forecast for Saturday is sunny and 66 degrees, a huge improvement over the craptastic start to last year's festival, when a hail storm and windy conditions suppressed crowds. about 20,000 people are expected this year.
