Oakville Waterfront Festival

It was a long weekend here and I started mine off by heading west of my hood to hang out with some Peeps in their neck of the woods and check out the Oakville Waterfront Festival. It was a perfect weather day and I got my tan on all while enjoying some food truck offerings.

It’s food truck lane, slowly packing them in.

A lamb burger from Crossroads Diner. Nicely spiced.

Concert stage, shopping and sand castles.

Ice cream and mini wheats. Sure, why not?

I love this truck’s name and the risotto balls were pretty tasty too. Amazing tomato sauce.

I love being by the water. Beautiful blue skies. Boats going by and in the far distance you can Toronto -requires a zoom in.

Love this guy too – it’s wacky waving inflatable arm flailing tube man.

A bit more desert before going home. I hit up San Remo Bakery . Ordered an apple fritter (a suggestion from a Peep) and I wanted a cannoli. I did however want a custard filled cannoli (top picture). Opened the box and discovered she had given me regular cannolis. I suppose a miscommunication however, I still have a craving for the custard ones, so I will be making another trip back. The regular ones were yummy and I loved the texture of the apple fritter, super soft in the middle and crunchy caramelized outside with nice apple pieces.

I’ve been dreaming of the gnocchi poutine. I hope my path crosses with that truck again soon. =)
