Food Trucks in Coconut Grove

Food trucks are all the rage today, but anyone who knows Coconut Grove knows that they started the trend way back in 1978. That’s right; for thirty-four years people have flocked to our lovely Coconut Grove Park – Kennedy Park to slurp down a frozen lemonade at A.C.’s Icee’s.
