Once again, the Superior Chamber of Commerce and their well oiled machine of volunteers and community advocates hosted a successful event. Prickly Pear Committee Chairman Michael Hing reported that they estimated 600-700 people attended the event.
Each class was filled with people looking to learn more about the edible cactus, they purchased jams, jellies, cookies and art by the bundles and just about everyone stopped into the cactus cafe (chamber office) to try one of Jean Groen award winning prickly pear margaritas.
Nearly all of the restaurants had a prickly pear item on their menu, most restaurants reported selling out of their particular menu items.
If you missed the event this year, or maybe you were wondering what all the commotion was, don’t miss it next year, it will be even bigger and better.
