Spring has officially started but that doesn't mean that you can't enjoy a good bowl of soup from local restaurants. The process of choosing which soup and which restaurant may get a litter easier for you this weekend, if you attend the Upper Alton Association's "Souper Saturday" event at the Alton Sports Tap. 

From noon until 3 p.m. on April 6th, attendees will have the opportunity to eat a variety of soups from various Alton restaurants according to Upper Alton Association Steering committee chairperson Millie Hancock:

Hancock Comments

Hancock says that there will also be a cash bar available during the event. Tickets are $6 in advance and $8 at the door. When the event ends at 3 p.m. a "people's choice" award will be given to the soup that receives the most votes and the winning restaurant will get a $100 prize. The rest of the money from the event will be used to fund the organization's various projects and events in Upper Alton.
