From a press release:

Wrapping up the casino’s three-month Hot Summer Fun promotion, Mohegan Sun Pocono in Wilkes-Barre will host its annual Food Truck Festival on Sunday, Aug. 25.

Held on the Pocono Downs racetrack from noon-5 p.m., this family-friendly event will feature some of the best food truck cuisine in Northeastern Pennsylvania, live entertainment, family activities, and more. Guests will have the chance to channel their inner foodie with some delicious food truck eats and drink specials, and those who stick around can catch some live harness racing at 7 p.m.

The festival is open to all ages, and admission is free. Food truck participants include, but are not limited to:

  • Nanny Cakes Bakery – a Bloomsburg-based bakery specializing in making delicious cookies, pies, pastries, and more from scratch
  • Pazzo Pizza Truck – New Hope natives serving delicious, wood-fired pizza
  • FonDippity – a husband-wife duo from Dallas, Pennsylvania bringing a fun twist to decadent fondue
  • 2Wayz One Passion – authentic Mexican-American cuisine straight out of Scranton
  • Get Rollin Gourmet Egg Rolls – serving up unique homemade egg rolls from Pottsville
  • Dottie’s Buffalo Bites – bringing the best boneless wings, cheesesteaks, burgers, and more from Benton
  • Eat Up Now – a Party on the Patio favorite and creator of the Texas Cheesesteak, all the way from Hanover

Live entertainment will be provided by Screaming Broccolli from New York City, a Breakers favorite. Even though the band started during the height of the grunge era, their huge catalog of songs stretches from classic rock to ’80s and ’90s hits and the biggest and best current Top 40 jams.

“We are perfectionists,” frontman and founding member Mike Loughlin said. “We work tirelessly to make sure every cover sounds as authentic as possible.”

The Food Truck Festival will also offer a variety of activities, including axe throwing with Axecessive Force, tarot card readings by Tarot for Living, and walk-up tournaments with NEPA Cornhole throughout the afternoon.
