Tickets available at the door. $15 for adults and $10 for children under ten. Extra parking is available at Harbor Beach with complimentary trolley service to and from the event site.
Empty Bowl events are held nationally to generate awareness concerning hunger and to raise money for local hunger-relief programs. Proceeds from this event will benefit The Open Door Summer Meals and Mobile Market programs.
