Saturday night was Food Truck night as more than a dozen trucks parked and locals partook of everything from grilled cheese to churrasco steak, and tacos to tiramisu. Despite the heat of the late afternoon, kids danced and chases soap bubbles and adults relaxed by the waterfront.

As the new Harbourside waterfront takes shape and construction continues, events like this could become a thing of the past, as the new shops and restaurants move in. But the smart thing to do would be to encourage more Food Truck Fests. Just getting people to come out and eat, then providing easy walking access to shops ans services on the east, north and south side of the Indiantown Road bridge would take the entire shopping destination concept and tie it together neatly. Add the "funky fishing village" in development on A1A to the north and the addition of The Fresh Market on the west side of the bridge this summer, and you've got a town that's becoming a fierce food destination.

To follow events at Riverwalk, Harbourside and other parks, visit the Town of Jupiter's website.
