The event served as the perfect way to stay warm, be with friends and family, and listen to live music. The Town’s Culture and Tourism Coordinator Kristen Shima said it was a “very social” event and people were able to hang around and talk while enjoying the soup. She added the crowd was steady all day. Shima wanted to bring the event to Sylvan Lake to connect the community to art and the local food bank, which is where the event’s proceeds went.
