Like the reappearance of robins, the sight of food trucks filling Larkin Square is one of the first signs of springtime in Buffalo. This year, “Buffalo’s biggest dinner party” will once again begin earlier than ever, as Food Truck Tuesdays return to Larkinville for another six-month season starting April 11th. Admission and parking are free thanks to the generous support of presenting sponsor KeyBank and sponsor Independent Health.
