For 11 years, the Superior Chamber of Commerce has hosted an annual event that celebrates the many talents of the local artists in Superior. This year the event will be celebrated this Sat., Oct. 20, 2012 on Main St.
The day begins with a pancake breakfast hosted by the Superior Optimist Club and Superior Little League at 8 a.m. The groups will be selling pancakes, eggs, bacon, juice and coffee for a suggested donation of $6. The breakfast will be held at the Porters Cafe Patio.
Walk off your breakfast with a stroll through the classic car show on Main St. Last year the car show had over 100 entries. Event organizers are hoping for an even larger turnout this year. Vendor booths including a wine tasting by Pleasant Valley Winery will be held in the Superior Senior Center from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Chuck Wagon and The Wheels will be playing live music at Porters Cafe from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Another addition to the festival this year is “en plein air” method painters. These artists paint their pictures outside and use the natural scenery for inspiration.
From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. event goers can visit the home studios of some of Superior’s finest artists. Tickets are $10per person to visit the studios of Tommy Macias, Terry Stone, Marilee Lasch, Chuck Davidson, Bernie Neinaber and John Moreno.
Those tickets will also admit participants into the artists’ reception at Porter’s Patio from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
