This Saturday 5/5, head over to Urby at 200 Greene Street for the Cinco de Mayo Food Truck Festival.
The event will be held in the parking lot right outside the Harborside Light Rail and will include live mariachi music, a beer and wine garden that will also be serving up margaritas, and more than 20 different food trucks. It will also be family-friendly with rides for kids and face-painting.

The festival will run from 12-6pm and admission is $5/person* at the gate with kids under 12 free of charge. Stop by to celebrate Cinco De Mayo with a few drinks and some food. They'll also be screening the Kentucky Derby Races outside.
*It's worth noting that most other local food truck events in Jersey City do not charge an entry fee. This event does include a variety of outside entertainment and non-food vendors, but I hear a lot of complaints about cost/value so please take that into consideration ahead of time.
