David is OFF TO BERKLEE College of Music in Boston! Oct 12-15 is Parent’s Weekend

We are PROUD PARENTS!  This past weekend we joined David in Boston at the Berklee College of Music.  It was an amazing experience as we jumped into the classroom and did ear training with one of the professors, drumming with an African drumming instructor and toured the campus.  We also (of course) hopped on stage and preformed Wagon Wheel at the Faculty Jam.  David is really shining there.  We spent an hour in a tiny practice room – the piano, bench, David and Ken and Marcy tucked onto the back wall.  David practices and practices.  The magic is that for him is it all pure joy!  He’s going to major in Electronic Music Production.  Stay tuned! Thank you all for your support of David’s musical journey!    20171013_09293020171013_16581120171013_18101520171013_11263220171013_11015720171013_10345020171013_10171620171013_100842 20171013_181015 20171014_091741 20171015_170403 com

National Mustard Day Aug 5th Highlights perform 1:30-4 pm! 2017

 

National Mustard Day At The Mustard Museum

27th Annual Celebration of the King of Condiments is August 5th!

NATIONAL MUSTARD DAY Street FestivalSATURDAY, AUGUST 5, 2017 — 10am – 4pm MIDDLETON, WISCONSIN

We’ve truly come a long way. The very first National Mustard Day occupied about 3 parking stalls in front of the original Museum. Now, we close off Parmenter and Hubbard streets in downtown MIDDLETON, WISCONSIN. As the years have gone by the celebration has definitely gotten bigger and better!

On August 5, (rain or shine!) Middleton will transform into the Condimental Divide as the undisputed Epicenter of Condimental Appreciation where thousands of mustard lovers gather — some spicy, some sweet; some exotic, some hot. It takes all kinds. Oh, and the many mustards available for hot dogs and tastings are also spicy, sweet, exotic, and hot…

This year, we’re proud to partner with the nonprofit research accelerator, No More Kids With Cancer. Their social media campaign “The Mustard Challenge” is raising awareness and funds for pediatric cancer research. Join us for the World’s Biggest Mustard Challenge at National Mustard Day!

AUG 5th It’s NATIONAL MUSTARD DAY with the HIGHLIGHTS

ONCE A YEAR! The street in blocked off to make room for festivities celebrating  – yes! MUSTARD!

Saturday, August 5th!  10-5 pm!  See the Highlights from 1:30-4:00 pm!

Take the Mustard Challenge at 1:00 pm and support the children cancer research.

Do good and Eat Mustard!
