Temperatures have dropped, leaves are beginning to change, and many of us are starting to get the craving for the perfect fall food…soup! Of course, Downtown Appleton is here to help you feed that craving with a spirited walk on an autumn day dotted with places to sample signature soups prepared by local chefs eager to earn bragging rights for their kettles of goodness.
If you are ready to eat your way through Downtown Appleton with delicious soups, you’ll want to buy your ticket now and join us on Saturday, October 20 from 1:00 – 4:30 p.m., when each of 20 restaurants, separated into two walks, will offer samples of their special soup. Participants are encouraged to vote for their favorite dish for a chance to win Downtown Appleton gift certificates for themselves.
The free downtown trolley will provide fun, easy transportation to all the participating venues on the West End and Riverfront route.
This event sells out quick – so be sure to round up your friends and family to get yours now! You can purchase online at appletondowntown.org, and at the ADI office located at 116 N. Appleton St.
