On Thursday May 23rd a Food Truck Invasion descended into Wellington for a National Hamburger Month competition. All the Food Trucks were tasked with coming up with “Specialty Burgers” and “Specialty Desserts” if you were a Dessert Truck. The judges (Burgers by the Beach, Dine Out With Mike & Walk About Wellington) sampled all of the dishes and chose one winner in the Food category and one winner in the Dessert category. And the winners were…..c’mon it’s not gonna be that easy but the last picture reveals who won. Just think, as you make your way to the end you can enjoy all the food pics.
