This year marks the 100th anniversary of one of Boston’s most iconic brands, Prince Pasta.
To celebrate this milestone and pay homage to the city of Boston and the people who gave the brand its start, the company kicked off a month-long celebration with a “Born in Boston” food truck that will hit different areas of the city all throughout the month of September.
To mark the occasion, Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino declared Wednesday, Sept. 4, 2013, Prince Spaghetti Day in Boston.
“To my fellow Bostonians I say: Eat more pasta every day,” said Menino.
Serving the first bowls of steaming pasta from the food truck were chefs Christine and Carla Pallotta of Nebo, while several MassArt students showcased sculptures of Boston landmarks made entirely of pasta.
The “Born in Boston” Prince Pasta food truck will travel each Wednesday in September and be serving pasta from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the following locations:
- September 11: Prudential Center
- September 18: City Hall Plaza
- September 25: Dewey Square
