Spring is just around the corner — even if it doesn't look much like it today.
And when the snow finally melts, the streets of downtown Montreal will start to see food trucks again.
And there will be more of them, in more locations — including some outside the downtown Ville-Marie borough.
Starting on May 1, and through Oct. 5, food trucks will be in the following locations, seven days a week:
• Cité du multimédia (De La Commune W. at Brennan)
• McCord Museum (Victoria St., north of President Kennedy)
• Hector Toe Blake Park (Sussex St. at René-Lévesque W., near the Children's Hospital)
• Médéric-Martin Park (De Rouen St. at Du Havre)
• Place d'Armes
• Quartier de la santé (St. Denis St., south of Viger)
• City Councillors, north of De Maisonneuve Blvd.
• Dorchester Square (on Metcalfe)
• Phillips Square (on Cathcart)
• Victoria Square (On St. Antoine, between Square-Victoria and St. Alexandre)
• Concordia University (on Mackay St., north of De Maisonneuve)
In addition, a truck will be located at Mount Royal Park, near the Georges-Etienne Cartier monument, where the Tamtams take place, and two additional sites, during major events: Bellerive Park at Fullum and Notre-Dame street, on fireworks nights, and Place Emilie-Gamelin, on nights when there are major events.
The application process for restaurateurs is underway, and ends April 4.
