Our first Wine Festival!!

Wow did we have fun! We went to Avon Lake's very 1st Wine Festival. Joe & Di came with us and we really had a nice time!! I got a little looped, but that's okay. For $20 you get a wine glass...
and 10 tickets to go to the different tents set up and taste local wines. To be honest, it's about time they had something like this since we have about 3 or 4 wineries in our little town. We're known for grapes! I should have taken more pictures and it was nice of Joe to grab some young kid and hand him my iPhone. Unfortunately we had Lake Erie and the sunset behind us but...oh well.
L-R, Paul, me, Di & Joe

Our beautiful Lake Erie sunset
I think this is something we could do every year. I don't think they expected the turnout they got. They only had 5 wineries set up and the lines were really long. They did have a few eateries where you could purchase some cheese and crackers and even sandwiches! Great fun!
