Hello again so soon. That's because we have some great news for all you Food Truck fans. Food Trucks are returning to Papa Robbs  EVERY Wednesday starting June 3!

Recently we have had many of you asking about food trucks, so we are pleased that they have organized this "Mini Food Truck Wednesday Rally". The All Star Cafe, a BBQ truck, another TBD truck & special visit from a cupcake truck (we will be doing cupcake ala-modes).  NOTE: The All Star Cafe & the Bacon Connection trucks will be alternating as the main hosts of this event - again, on Wednesdays.

The important thing here is your support. We have had food trucks over the past two years. Several have chosen not to return due to a lack of support. These are all private, individual businesses, so we urge you to come out & support this Mini Rally idea.

Again, every Wednesday, from 5:00 - 9:00 pm - starting June 3.

An added bonus is that " Lyndsay Wednesday " returns featuring DJ , Lynsanity who will be playing many of your tropical favorites. Look for Lynsanity to host several special Theme Tributes this summer for many of your favorite musical acts.

Food Trucks & DJ Music - an exciting combo - see you June 3.

Hello everyone. Hope you are keeping up with all our latest news through our blogs, calendar & social media such as Twitter & Facebook. Lot's is happening & more to come.

First please note that some - hopefully most - of our Festival Fridays will expand into the party area. With more themes this year along with visiting artists, performers, crafts persons, things can get crowded - therefore the expansion. May 8 was a prime example: Tripp The Clown, Beverly with Face Painting, Terry's Dawgs (hotdogs), plus board games, cornhole, performers with  "twirly gigs" & hula hoops -- and our very special guests, Ed Bounds & his Dakota & Friends Dinosaurs!!!  What a night - & more is to come.

Speaking of which, we are ALWAYS looking for performers, artists, & IDEAS. Call or email us with all suggestions.

A special word here about Tripp The Clown. Many of you have asked about him & parties. YES, YES, YES, Tripp does special appearances & has reasonable rates. The easiest way to reach him is through a facebook link or email to:  - or can contact him through us at:

We have added an Official Neighborhood Night - every Tuesday. Your neighborhood, apartment complex, etc can easily be a part. Simply call us or email us for details. Discounts are available on Tuesdays, but your neighborhood MUST be registered.

As you know Papa Robbs loves to be involved with our community & you can help. Currently we are looking for email & phone contacts with Girl & Boy Scout troops, etc for help with a scouting event. Please send us info.

That's it for now, but remember to watch our blogs, calendar & social media for updates, changes & other happening news.  See you soon.

Hello to all our friends. Some quick news about this weekend, but we also want to say welcome - at last - to WARM WEATHER. Also a big thank you to all who braved the below average temperatures & all that rain in April. We sincerely appreciate your support.

This weekend: We are attempting to kick our Festival Fridays up a notch or two as we get into our season. This Friday Ed Bounds returns with the Dakota & Friends dinosaurs!! This is always a crowd pleaser & a very special event for us - one you DO NOT WANT TO MISS! We are adding a small area where your child can actually ride a dinosaur so make you plans & join us & Ed, Dakota & all his dinosaur friends. 

Joining Dakota will be Tripp The Clown who always comes up with some new & fun acts, skits & other tricks up his sleeve. We are so proud of Tripp & lucky to have him as part of our Festival Family.  If you haven't  seen the wild & wonderful face paintings from Beverly - then you are truly missing something special. She is returning Friday so join Face Painting with Beverly. And let's not forget our good friend, Terry's Dawgs , with his great hot dogs!!

The entire event will move to the party center this Friday  where you will also find a few board games for the family, plus jump ropes, hula hoops & Bean Bag Toss (cornhole) games for both adults & for kids.

As our theme Festivals increase, about half will be in our Party Center (we need a name for our party area - any suggestions?) this year.

Let's not forget our Moms this Mothers Day. Every Mom will get a FREE small Ice Cream or Paradise Ice!  So bring all Moms & Grandmothers & the rest of the family for some yummy treats -- free for you Moms. Let's call it "Moms at Papas Day"!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks again & we will see you this weekend.
