Mugs N Hugs Across the Northland

Participants were also given a free souvenir mug with a root beer float inside, potato chips from Old Dutch and other take-home gifts. Mugs and Hugs events were held in May and June at Benna Ford in Superior, Savers in Duluth and Wade Stadium in Duluth during a Duluth Huskies game.
