On Saturday, June 9, the Franklin High School Project Graduation will host its first Food Truck Festival from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Franklin High School, 500 Elizabeth Avenue, in Somerset.

The event will include 12 to 15 food trucks with a mix of different foods and desserts. Numerous vendor tables are also expected to provide a shopping experience for the expected 500+ visitors.

A Kid's Zone area will offer face painting, blow up rides, and other activities. Attendees will also have a chance to win a laptop, jewelry, flat screen TV and more during a raffle at the end of the night (winners don't need to be present).

A DJ will be on hand for entertainment throughout the day. There will also be self-defense and Zumba classes during the event. Live entertainment includes dance performances from the Academy of Dance Arts, 32 World's Fair Drive, Somerset under the Directorship of Kimberly Kane.

"Project Graduation is an annual event, it is a safe, all night, alcohol and drug-free celebration, that has been taking place in the community since 1994," FTHSPG, President Nicolas DiMeglio said. "Each year parents, students and Teachers work together to generate the approximately $28,000 that is required to provide this event for our graduating seniors." 

Local businesses continue to support the Organization by generous donations. This year our supporters include Franklin Township Municipal Alliance, Franklin Township Police Department, Elizabeth Avenue Vol. Fire Company Ladies Auxilary, Venus Jewelers, Renaissance at Raritan Valley HOA, Bound Brook Moose Lodge 988, Premier Homes, Marigold, Joy Systems, Stop and Shop, WaWa, Somerset County Vo Tech, SSP Architects, DRG Architects, Zarephath Christian Church, Eagles, Glen Goldstein, DMD, Peter and Lorraine Provenzale, La Bonbonniere Bake Shoppe and Parker McCay Attorneys.

Project Graduation has continued because of school and community volunteers believing in the necessity of striving to keep our children and young adults safe on graduation night.

The culminating event for Project Graduation takes place on the night of graduation at Franklin High School. The celebration includes catered food, music, photo booths laser tag, and many more activities and forms of entertainment at the high school.
