Please pass the Pea Soup
This year’s Pea Soup Days festivities kicked off Thursday, June 5, and wrapped up Sunday, June 8. This year’s event was a collaboration among the Somerset Chamber of Commerce, the Somerset Lions Club and Somerset Fire/Rescue.
Despite the rainy weather and the parade being delayed two hours, hundreds of people turned out for the celebration. Highlights included the festival's namesake being made by the Boy Scouts, the first ever Pea Soup Medallion Hunt, the first ever River Race, live music, the carnival, parade, pancake breakfasts at the fire hall, the Lions Club golf tournament, softball tournaments and fire department water fights.
