  • May 27, 2013 · 12:00 PM

Food trucks are all the rage! Check them out on Memorial Day Monday to see what the hype is all about. Bring your appetite and enjoy a day of live Thoroughbred racing.

LIVE MUSIC
Enjoy music by Incognito in the Courtyard of Champions from Noon to 4 PM. www.IncognitoRocks.com

FAMILY FRIENDLY
Check out the Family Fun Park from Noon to 4 PM on the Bar & Book Lawn including Bounce Houses, Pony Rides and more! You're probably gonna want a hat, sunglasses and some sunscreen too! There are some shady spots to sit and eat in the park, but the food truck lines don't generally have any shade.

$5 ADMISSION / FREE PARKING
Gates open at 11:30 a.m. First live race is at 1:35 p.m. $5 General Admission. Free General Parking. www.LoneStarPark.com

UNHOSTED EVENT
There's lots going on this holiday weekend, thought you might be interested in this inexpensive family-friendly event. Since it’s a come-n-go event, we’re not planning to arrive and hang out as a group. Feel free to drop by with family and friends.

PHOTOS
Last year's festival had about a dozen food trucks. Check out the photos from 2012 HERE!

    We waited by the gate a few minutes didn't see anyone that looked familiar from the pics, went on to the food trucks. Seeing the horses race was awesome. We had such a fun time :)

    Rhonda ( and others ) I'm running late, but I'm in Irving so I can get there in a bit. When does this thing go in till? Are the food trucks there till 4:00 or much later. It's 3:04 now, maybe I'll be there about 3:30. Where will you all be?

    Will be wearing blue jeans, sneakers, tie dye blue shirt. Will see everyone at the gate that leads to the food trucks. Only been out there once right after opened years ago. My picture is not current. Longer hair and a Lot heavier.

    Since this is an 'Unhosted' event where can we all meet and sit together? I'm going for the Food Trucks, but will stay and 'clean up' at the races.

      You could pick a time to meet some folks at the gate leading out to the food trucks. You'd need to post some way for them to pick you out of the crowd - like maybe a specific hat youre wearing or something.

    Forgot about the time- How does 15 before the gates open (noon) to about 5 past (It's a long walk from the parking lots) so we can meet and sit together.

    No hat this time, it messes my hair. Uniform of the day, jeans, blue print blouse, comfortable sneakers. My photo is current so anyone should recognize me, even if we haven't met before. See everyone there.

    Hi. So does the general admission of $5 include going into to the races?

    May 26, 2013

    • Dawn

      Nope, its $5 to get into park. Includes racing. But you can pay more for better seats if you prefer.

      Thanks so much Dawn. We decided not to go because I thought it was extra, we'[l be coming now. Hope to see you all there. Is someone going to set up a place for us to meet and maybe sit together?The lady that answered the phone at Lone Star said the lawn chairs are limited and are for first come first serve. She said we can bring our own.
