On Saturday, August 4, 2012, food truck mania of gastronomic proportions descended on Manhattan’s historic South Street Seaport for the fifth annual PARKED! Food Truck Festival. Over 30 of NYC’s most premium food trucks were salivated over by thousands of atendees. Lifestyle curators MeanRed instigated the NYC food truck craze four years ago, when the first PARKED! hit the modest waterfront venue BKLYN Yard. New Yorkers connected with the simple idea of spending the afternoon outside, grabbing a bite from their favorite food trucks, and listening to live music. Since then, PARKED! has grown from 5 to over 30 tantilizing food trucks. Some of this years trucks included: Eddie’s Pizza, Fishing Shrimp, Wafels and Dinges and Domo Taco Truck.
