Soup Day, or Hat Day, heated up early on 2 Street with the 2nd annual Golden Ladle Soup competition today at the Mummers Museum. About a dozen Mummers Clubs took part. The judges tasted great soups from Cara Liom’s “Tomato Basil,” to Quaker City’s “Pepper Pot,” to South Philly Vikings’ “Pasta Fagioli,” to Froggy Carr’s “Manhattan Clam Chowder,” and more. The event also included face painting for the kids and a visit from Santa.
And, the winner of the 2nd annual Golden Ladle contest is? Donna Howlett of the JHJ Saints with her “Seafood Bisque.” This is the second win for Donna. She is so far the only winner of the contest. Congratulations, Donna! The Jokers and their “Maryland Crab Shell” and Saturnalian and their “Beef Barley” finished 2nd and 3rd.
