Comments Off on Sensational Soup-off and Empty Bowls
Every year on Thanksgiving, the Wellington County Museum and Archives hosts 18 soup makers; professional, amateur and youth, competing to become the “Super Souper” of the year in their category. Come sit back with your soup and a glass of beer or wine and enjoy wonderful music throughout the afternoon.
We are also very grateful to local potters for donating bowls each year as part of our “Empty Bowls” program. You can purchase one of these beautiful, one-of-a-kind bowls, have it refilled with soup up to 18 times, vote for your favourite soup, listen to music, and help us combat hunger. There’s no better way to celebrate Thanksgiving.
The best weekend of the fall season is here and the best place to be? Also here. Right here, in Elora. Why? Because it’s sensational!
