2nd Annual Food Truck Frenzy

The Castle Pines Chamber of Commerce is excited to host the second annual Food Truck Frenzy event in beautiful Elk Ridge Park in the heart of Castle Pines.  This event was such a huge success in its inaugural year, that we’ve made it even bigger and better!  Eight food trucks will be on hand offering everything from pizza and hot dogs to quinoa bowls and delicious crepes.  Live music from 70’s and 80’s cover band “Lookin’ Back” and a beer garden courtesy of Rockyard Brewery will help ensure a good time.  Local chalk artist Jerod Anderson will be getting dirty with the kids as they decorate the sidewalk around the park with their own chalk creations.  Don’t miss out on all of the fun! June 4th from 4–8 p.m.

Stuart Weitzman has partnered with Pencils of Promise (PoP) to share in its mission to create schools, programs and global communities around the common goal of education for all. With a focus on creating quality elementary education programs within the rural regions of developing nations, Stuart Weitzman will fund the building of three schools: one each in Ghana, Guatemala and Laos. Working alongside each community to train and empower locals with these self-sustainable schools, the Stuart Weitzman and PoP partnership takes a step closer to the vision that every child has the basic right to education. To benefit the cause, Stuart Weitzman has created an exclusive yellow suede version of the NEARLYNUDE block-heel sandal – one of the hottest styles from the spring collection – proceeds from which will benefit the building of the three schools. With a suggested retail price of $398, this limited-edition charity style is available only at and at Stuart Weitzman flagship boutiques in New York, Beverly Hills, Chicago, Dallas, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Las Vegas and Costa Mesa.
