Food Truck Friday at the Roger Williams Park Carousel

A new event brings together two wondrous things: food trucks and Victorian-style carousel horses.

On Friday, gather up the family for some food truck eats and a whirl around Roger Williams Park's famed carousel — not necessarily in that order.

The Carousel Village, now managed by Roger Williams Park Zoo, launches its first-ever Food Truck Friday from 4:30 to 8 p.m. on May 22. Admission is free, and carousel rides are $2 per person. Participating trucks include:

Championship Melt: The ultimate kid-pleasing cuisine, grilled cheese.
Elwood's Dog House: The first runner-up in kid-pleasing cuisine, hot dogs.
Gotta "Q" BBQ Food Truck and Catering: A Southern meal on wheels, not limited to whole racks of ribs, mac and cheese and creamy coleslaw.
Like No Udder: Vegan soft serve delights that taste just as good as the real thing.
Mijos Tacos: California-style tacos and Mexican street food.
O'Crepe: French crepes, both savory and sweet.
The Salad Man and Juice Bar: Healthy food truck fare (why I never!).
Z food truck: Wraps, salads and sandwiches, including a delicious veggie falafel.
