Pea Soup Day’s Festival celebrates our French-Canadian heritage. Pea Soup was a staple food for those who settled in the area. Somerset has been celebrating its heritage with Pea Soup Days since the 1940s or ’50s. Pea Soup Days’ main attractions include a 5K race, softball tournament, golf tournament, parade, craft fair, food concessions and carnival. Other highlights will be Friday night fireworks and live bands in Village Park on Friday and Saturday nights. For the fifth year now, revelers can look forward to a medallion hunt, clues for the hunt will be published on peasoupdays.com, Facebook and Twitter starting in May and each Tuesday at 9 a.m. until Pea Soup Days. People searching will also need to purchase a Pea Soup Days button for $2, which also enters you for a chance to win $100 both Friday and Saturday night after the band’s first set is complete. Contestants must be present to win.
