Food trucks gather at the Cherry Blossom Festival’s fireworks show

The annual celebration includes all kinds of family-friendly activities, like mini sailboat races, live music and face-painting beginning at 1 p.m., and it culminates in fireworks at 8:30 p.m. But what will really make the festival a destination for hungry cherry-blossom viewers is the veritable RV park of food trucks that will be gathered there. Festival organizers have invited the Red Hook Lobster Truck, Curbside Cupcakes, Fojol Brothers, District Taco, Tasty Kabob, Eat Wonky, DC Slices, CapMac and Sidewalk Sweetsations. That’s an impressive assortment in an area that isn’t particularly known for varied dining options, and it solves the perennial question about where to eat after taking in the buds... at least for one day.
