“The event is put on as a way to promote the amazing food establishments and vendors in our area and to simply give people a fun night out,” said Nicole Korpusik, an organizer. “We had the Whistle Stop, Rawhides, Doris Sadowski of TLC Bed & Breakfast, April Schotts of Sew Sweets Bakery and Great Gido's Homebrew.

“Each vendor had several options to choose from, some new flavours and some classic favorites. Patrons purchased food tickets at the door and each vendor ‘sold’ a sample for generally 1 or 2 tickets. The variety was fabulous and the feedback was very positive. 

“Prior to patrons arriving we had a food competition for best appetizer, best entrée and best dessert,” she said.

Doris Sadowski won for best appetizer and best dessert while Rawhides won best entrée.

“The band, Odd Man Out, was fabulous as always and kept the dance floor hopping,” concluded Korpusik.
