Food Truck Festival!

Second Annual Food Truck Festival at the Holliston Historical Society was held today to benefit Holliston's American Legion.

My Dad "Babe" John Johnson was honored as the oldest living World War 2 Veteran in Holliston. Babe has lived his entire life in Holliston and is a well known character in town. He's 96 years young!

The Food Truck Festival included about 8 traveling kitchens that served a variety of menus. Last year, over 1,000 people attended this fun-filled event. I'd say even more people this year!

A great event, and the weather was perfect!
 Babe's son and wife stood by him as he received several documents honering his service in the war.  Clockwise: Steve Bradford-Head of the American Legion. Carolyn Dykema- State Representative for the Middlesex district,  Chairman Kevin Conley who interviewed Babe says a few words about Babes history, and Liz Turner Greendale the clerk from Town hall (who has known Babe since she started working there) shares some kind words.

It all ended with the crowd singing God Bless America.  Babe has a great singing voice and could be heard above the crowd!
Top right: Friends and family to cheer him on included, Sandy, Bill, Michael and Dottie.

His son escorted "our man of the hour" to and from the event in Babes beloved 1938 Ford.
