Start that diet or get ready to loosen your belt some more, because here comes another heaping plateful.
Red Bank RiverCenter, having pulled off two annual Guinness Oyster Festivals that each drew tens of thousands of visitors downtown, plans to add an International Food Festival to the same location the White Street municipal parking lot next spring.
