The Pocono Food Truck Festival is a Treat for Your Tastebuds

Pocono Food Truck FestivalFor a lot of us, we love food. We see food as an art, something that can enrapture almost all of our senses and take us on a journey somewhere we have never been before. We at Ledges Hotel, as well as our in-house restaurant Glass, take food seriously. Not only does it sustain us but it is something that we can enjoy as well. One part of the food industry that has recently taken off is the rise of food trucks. We in the Pocono Mountains love food trucks and especially love going to the Pocono Food Truck Festival.
