If anyone out there is a fan of tasty food at low prices than you will not want to miss this years "Taste of Wilmington" event!
I have been to 2 so far and have LOVED them! The setup is similar to that of a carnival where local restaurants have booths & tents set-up where they offer samples of some of their tastiest menu items. To sample the food you must give them a ticket or two that can be purchased at the entrance to the grounds. Each ticket has a value of $0.50 (fifty cent). Some vendors give their samples away free. Cooked food may cost a ticket or two but drinks chips and snacks can often be had for free.
This is a MUST DO for anyone that would like to walk and sample the foods from restaurants from all over the state. Lots of fun, plenty to see and they also have many things to do for the kids and adults.
This year they seem to have changed the format for the event as they are charging a higher entrance price. I imagine that if you listen to WJBR they will once again tell you where to go to get a coupon for a discount on the entrance cost.
Once at the event, If you stick around when it is ending, the vendors begin to give away the food they have left. One year a vendor tried to give me a whole baked ham! I said no thank you but my sister took it!
