Wellington Classic Dressage Challenge + “Food Truck Frenzy” = Fun Weekend!

Looking for something FREE and different to do this weekend?

The Palms West Community Foundation is pleased to partner with the Wellington Classic Dressage for their first competition of the 2012 Challenge Series.  This qualifying competition will be held at the Palm Beach County Jim Brandon Equestrian Center, located at 7500 Forest Hill Blvd. in West Palm Beach, FL.  The competition will be held on Saturday, January 7th and Sunday, January 8th from 8:30 until 5:30 on both days, and the equestrian event is FREE to spectators!

Dressage is known as “dancing” for the horses, and many people have never been able to see it live.  “Although it is a FREE event, the public doesn’t usually even know that this is available to them to enjoy,” explains Maureen Gross of the Palms West Community Foundation.  The unique combination of athletic ability, physical grace and visual pleasure makes Dressage a wonderful sport for participants and spectators, alike. The rapport that develops between horse and rider exists at all levels of Dressage, and will be demonstrated at this event.

Another added attraction is the “Food Truck Frenzy” scheduled to be there on both days for the spectators of the horse show to enjoy.  “We are anticipating having around 8-10 food trucks on the property that weekend.  These ‘gourmet restaurants on wheels’ have become quite a local phenomenon,” explained Gross. “We have been wanting to feature the food trucks in the Western Communities, and this pairing of them with an equestrian competition seemed like a perfect fit!”  All of the food trucks chosen for this event are top-notch gourmet, with many classically trained chefs on the premises. All the attendees and participants can choose from a varied array of food and styles of cuisine from PS561 Hotdogs to Dolce Gourmet Cupcakes to Stocked ‘N Loaded to Curbside Gourmet and more!  They just pay as they go for the food that they choose, but one thing is for sure… this is not your usual, curbside hot dog vendor!

Gross continued, “We are pleased to provide a great venue for the public to come and enjoy the Food Trucks’ tasty offerings, and enjoy a day watching the FREE Dressage competition.” January 7th & 8th will offer the public the chance to experience a unique equestrian event at the Wellington Classic Dressage Challenge I, AND a unique selection of gourmet delights to choose from at the Food Truck Frenzy.

It all adds up to a day of fun in the Western Communities!
