Many of the town's merchants and organizations will be whipping up batches that come from family secret recipes or good old fashioned soups with surprising special ingredients. The public will serve as tasters who will not only be able to vote for the winner but also, after voting for their favorite, will be entered in a grand prize drawing.
To become a taster/judge visit the Harbor Beach Visitors Center on Saturday and purchase a button for $2. You will receive a ballot, a map and a spoon. Then take a stroll downtown to the storefronts and start sampling. Merchants and organizations without a storefront downtown will be at the library located at the main light in Harbor Beach.
After giving all the soups a try how about dessert? They've got that covered too because this Saturday is the dessert contest in Harbor Beach too. Judges will rate each dessert based on appearance, taste and texture. The winning desserts will be given Harbor Beach bucks to spend anywhere in Harbor Beach. After the winners are announced, the desserts will be sold by the piece to anyone in attendance or stopping by the Visitors Center.
