A sea of brightly colored umbrellas filled Yogi Berra Stadium to shield families from the beaming rays of the sun. The bustling, energized crowd assembled on the baseball field as they debated which craving to indulge.
On Saturday, Sept. 28, the Montclair State University community gathered at the third annual Yogi Berra Stadium Food Truck Festival to celebrate a day of “feasting and fun.”
Over 25 local eateries like Clydes, Churroland, Empanada Guy, Empanada Lady, House of Cupcakes, Shake Shack, Star of the Seafood, Taste of Poland, Texas Smoke Barbecue and The Oreo Fix offered delicious options that everyone could enjoy.
The sounds of Alternative Groove were amplified across the field and played behind sounds of children engaging in backyard games and climbing on inflatable obstacles.
Included in the cost of admission, Yogi Berra Museum & Learning Center offered admission to their latest exhibit titled “Discover Greatness: An Illustrated History of Negro Leagues Baseball.” The center also has “PITCH!” an interactive throwing velocity test and was showing classic baseball movies throughout the day.
With a variety of events and activities, the stadium transformed into a community gathering for the whole family.
