Thanks to everyone who participated in this year's wonderful Big Tap ChautauquaFest. The day was highlighted with great weather, great food, great brews, great music, and great FUN!
Several hundred guests enjoyed this favorite fall event, which benefits the Lake Superior Big Top Chautauqua and the Ashwabay Outdoor Educational Foundation. Kevin and Terry with Big Top dubbed this year's fest as "the best Big Tap yet." Thank you!
Special shout-out to the Volunteers who went above and beyond to make this day special.
