Food Trucks, Fire Trucks and More

East Aurora, NY…In its third year, the annual Food Trucks N’ Fire Trucks event is expanding the event to include a craft show, basket raffle and a traveling 9/11 exhibit honoring the men and women who gave their lives to save others. Organized by the East Aurora Fire Department, this deliciously fun event will be held on Sunday September 4th from 11:00-9:00 pm at Firemen’s filed located off Pine St. in East Aurora.
“This event offers something for everyone.” states Larry Roland, Event Chair. “It is an afternoon where families can come out have a bite to eat, enjoy live music and support their local fire department.”
A highlight this year is the 9/11 travelling exhibit created by past chief of the Scottsville Volunteer Fire Company Glenn Sickles. The exhibit was just on display at the Erie County Fair. This year marks the 15th anniversary of September 11th attack and the exhibit commemorates those who gave their lives that day.
Also, new this year, is a craft show. There will be 20-25 local crafters who will be offering handmade items including soaps, dog treats and jewelry. There will also be a basket raffle offering the chance to win a basket or gift certificate from a local business.
For families, East Aurora’s famous Candy Cannon created by David Moomaw will fill the sky with candy wrapped in colorful streamers. The Candy Cannon will make 3 appearances at 12:00, 2:00 and 4:00. There will also be bounce houses and a selection of fire trucks and apparatus for kids to explore.
And most importantly, the food. This year will host 10 food trucks from the Buffalo and Rochester area. Visitors will have the opportunity to taste gumbo, wood fired pizza, tacos and gourmet popcorn. The East Aurora Fire Department will offer their traditional limburger and onions, clams and chowder. Beer and wine coolers will also be available with a selection of craft beers from Flying Bison. Entertainment will be Krossfire and Wasted Whiskey.
