The 2013 Soup and Chili Festival brought out a record number of folks, with almost 1,000 people! They sampled goodies from 32 booths, which was another record. Saturday could not have been a more perfect day. Mother Nature must like soup and chili, too!
The Pic Quik folks were getting an early start on the Third Thursday Mustache contest, it seems!
Look carefully, you’ll see Kristen Roderick of The News.
And Melanie Green was not at the helm of Bluebird Books, at least for a few minutes it was in other capable hands!
Congratulations to the winners!
