From Food Truck Fridays to Street Food Sundays — the weekend has been extended for fans of food truck fare in Nassau County.

Wendy Lantigua, the organizer of Food Truck Fridays in Oyster Bay, has expanded to Merrick where a handful of food trucks gather at the LIRR station at 1 Broadcast Plaza.

This weekend's lineup will feature Mama’s Cuban Kitchen, Smoke-N-Wheelz, No Good Burger truck (an extension of Baldwin’s No Good Burger Joint), The Cone Depot, The Little Dessert Truck and DJ Concessions, offering zeppole, fried Oreos and funnel cakes.

The event runs every Sunday (except Father's Day) from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Lantigua, who also owns The Happy Pig vegan food truck, says she hopes to add other nonfood vendors to the event soon, as well as themed Sundays, like a salsa day with dancing.

Over in Oyster Bay, Food Truck Fridays is still bringing in trucks like Crepes and Bakes, Grover’s Grub, Frozen Sin, All American Wontons, Extreme Empanadas and Royal Elite BBQ. 

The event takes place Fridays at St. Dominic’s Catholic Church (110 Anstive St.) from 5 to 9 p.m. This location features a playground for all to use.

There is no admission fee at either event; both run through Nov., weather permitting. Food trucks rotate on a weekly basis and all fare is pay-as-you-go; bring your own chairs or blankets.
