DERBY >> The Derby High School Post Prom Committee will hold a food truck festival from 12 to 6 p.m. Oct. 18 behind BJ's Wholesale Club on Division Street.
The event is geared to raise funds for the high school's post prom, which volunteer parents host each year as a safe alternative for prom-goers.
The festival will feature a variety of food trucks, offering everything from main courses to desserts. There will also be a variety of craft and service vendors on hand, along with children's activities. There will also be a DJ and live band performing throughout the day.
The DHS Post Prom Committee said all proceeds from the festival benefit the post prom, which treats students to an after prom party at the Sports Center in Shelton, where they can play games, eat lots of food and have fun in a safe environment. Committee members said parents have peace of mind knowing their children are in a controlled environment, having fun with their peers. The committee works year 'round raising money to ensure that prom-goers can attend the post prom for free.
Admission to the festival is $3 and free for children 12 and under.
