Sunset Park’d – a Gourmet Food Truck Festival will turn Sunset Park into an outdoor food court from noon to 9 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 16. The park, located at 2601 E. Sunset Road at Eastern Avenue, will host more than 30 local and regional food trucks with a sampling of food from hot dogs, sandwiches and tacos to lobster and dessert such as frozen yogurt, cupcakes and pineapple whip.
Children of all ages can enjoy the free, family-friendly event, which will have something for everyone, including children’s activities, a classic car show and live entertainment throughout the day.
Headlining this year’s event will be Crash Kings, an American rock band formed in Los Angeles in 2006. The members are vocalist-keyboardist Antonio "Tony" Beliveau, his brother and bassist Mike Beliveau, and drummer Tom Roslak. The band's self-titled debut album was released May 26, 2009, on Custard/Universal Motown. "Mountain Man," the band's first single, was released to U.S. modern rock radio stations in October and entered Billboard's Alternative Songs chart the following month, peaking at No. 25. The band is known for using analog keyboards such as the Clavinet with distortion effects and a whammy bar in place of a typical lead guitar.
Also performing on the live music stage will be local Las Vegas bands such as The Remedies, Lady Reiko and Sin City Prophets, Fleetwood Nicks, Paper Tigers, Love Vendetta, Ekoh and The Beau Hodges Band.
Sunset Park’d is made possible through sponsorship assistance from the following local businesses: Rock N Roll Wine, Las Vegas Review-Journal, CBS Radio and Miller Lite.
The event, which Clark County Parks and Recreation plans to make an annual affair, is to celebrate the recent completion of a four-year, $11.7 million renovation project to the Las Vegas Valley’s third-oldest park.
