Lots of fun. Very inspirational!
Elaine · October 31, 2012
It was smaller than expected and some of the demonstrations could be greatly improved, but it was still a nice outing for a couple of hours.
Rhoda O. · October 31, 2012
I thought it wasn't out there enough for a good turn out. It was smaller than i expected. Loved seeing the live cooking...that is the best.
