Event details

It’s Super Bowl weekend! Kick off the fun Saturday with a hike, a campfire and a soup-er bowl of your favorite comfort food! Lace up your hiking boots, bring your favorite bowl and a can of soup or chili (non-cream only).

You’ll want a camera to review the play. We will have two pots on the fire – are you team soup or team chili? We’ll let it simmer over an open flame while we set out for a brisk hike to the famous big bridge! We’ll take a timeout then head back to the fire to huddle up and enjoy a hot bowl of soup or chili to wind down the clock. Don’t fumble the chance for this fun winter workout! Score the extra point by bringing a second can for the Crete Food Pantry.
