Chamber members looking forward to third annual 'Taste of NYA'

The NYA Area Chamber of Commerce will again be hosting the Taste of NYA this summer on Tuesday, July 24 from 5 to 8 p.m. at Willkommen Memorial Park & Pavilion. This is the third year of the now annual event and the Chamber is hoping this is the best year yet!

This family-friendly evening includes a variety of fun and entertainment. Several local vendors will be offering samplings of delicious foods and tasty beverages, a few of which include: pizza, deli items, burgers, cheeses, desserts, beer-tasting, and other beverages.

D.J. Mr. Bigg will provide music to dance the night away. The police and fire department will be on hand with their vehicles, and in a new feature this year the fire department will perform a safety training exercise. Visitors will also have the opportunity to meet the 2011 Stiftungsfest Royalty, the 2012 Stiftungsfest Queen Candidates and the Dairy Princesses.

In addition to great food and entertainment, adults and children alike will enjoy a variety of fun activities, including bingo, games and door prizes sponsored by chamber members.

As the date approaches, advance tickets will be available July 1 through July 20 at Econofoods, KleinBank NYA, Citizens State Bank, KleinBank Cologne and State Bank of Hamburg. Advance ticket prices are $8 for adults, $4 for children 6-12; children 5 and under are free.
