A handful of Tucson food trucks set up in the parking lot of a small community park in Marana's Continental Ranch community Saturday morning, a warmup to tonight's roundup at the International Wildlife Museum.
This was the first time food Continental Ranch residents saw the trucks parked in the neighborhood. They normally set up in the parking lot of the now-closed Tower Theaters off Interstate 10 and Cortaro Road. The theater closed early in March and Harkins is planning to open in early May.
Among the trucks Saturday were newcomers DC Jumbie, serving up tropical Puerto Rican inspired fare; and Fire Engine Dogs, a hot dog vendor housed in what looks like a toy firetruck that has quietly operated mostly on weekends for the past nine months.
Catch them and Hellfire Pizza Co. from 5 to 8 p.m. today at the International Wildlife Museum, 4800 W. Gates Pass Road. Other trucks set to participate include Serial Grillers, Mustache Mike's Italian Ice, The Rolling Chef and Street Delights.
