Akron, Ohio, May 18, 2017– The City of Akron will be hosting a food truck huddle on Cascade Plaza downtown from 11:00 AM to 1:30 PM every Wednesday through September 27th. Each Cascade Cucina event, sponsored by PNC Bank, will feature at least six food trucks along with fun activities and entertainment, including yard games, and music courtesy of 91.3 The Summit.

“I encourage Downtown workers to step out of the office for that much-needed afternoon break to check out the delicious and diverse offerings of Cascade Cucina on the Plaza,” Mayor Horrigan said. “We are proud to feature a fantastic array of food trucks from Akron and Summit County for lunch every Wednesday this summer.”

The Cascade Cucina on the Plaza series builds on recommendations from Phase I of the City’s Downtown Redevelopment Plan. “For the Downtown neighborhood to thrive, we must continue to activate our public spaces, particularly on Main Street, and provide a vibrant mix of street-level activities that serve the whole community,” Mayor Horrigan said.  “I am confident the Cascade Cucina food truck huddles will be a welcome new addition to the Downtown scene this summer, and encourage the public to explore Downtown and rediscover all the great shops and restaurants it has to offer.”  

 “At PNC, our goal is to enrich the lives of those around us, and Cascade Cucina on the Plaza was the perfect opportunity,” said Kevin Thompson, regional president for PNC Bank in Akron. “Having food trucks downtown each week enhances the experience for downtown workers and residents while also helping build the city’s core.”

The Square Scullery
