Ahhh, the lazy days of summer. When you can kick back on a Sunday afternoon with a cold glass of Sauvignon Blanc and relax on your porch swing.
Oh wait. You have kids? Me too. So it’s more like you can either:
- Wait til they go to bed at
8:009:24 P.M. to finally get that drink in peace.
- Lock yourself in the bathroom with the wine while they pound on the door.
OR…you can ditch the kids and hit up the Washington Lake Park Wine Festival next weekend! (Don’t leave the kids home alone, though. You should at least hire a babysitter.)
Can you even imagine? Five kid-free hours to walk around and sample the yummiest wines New Jersey has to offer!
There will be 18 wineries on hand sampling and selling over 300 different wines, PLUS food, music, and artisan crafters. The festival is Saturday, June 21 and Sunday, June 22 from 12:00-5:00.
Here’s a recap of the festival last year from my friend Linda of Giggles, Gobbles, and Gulps (one of the event’s sponsors).
Tickets are $15 if you purchase them online prior to the event or $20 at the gate. Under 21 years of age are admitted free.
For tickets and a list of the wineries, visit the Washington Lake Park Wine Festival page here.
So let’s sip into summer with the very best wines that N.J. has to offer! Hope to see you there!
