Foothills Wine, Art and Music Festival - After The Party

    The 1st Annual Foothills Wine, Art and Music Festival was held on Saturday, October 26, 2002 at the Old Wilkes County Courthouse Square in historic Wilkesboro, North Carolina.  The Festival was sponsored by the City of Wilkesboro and Wilkes County to promote the local wineries and vineyards. 

    Friday night's rain stopped, and by the 10a.m. opening, the fog had lifted as the wineries and vendors finished their setup and the early birds started to trickle in.  The pace picked up after noon, and a steady stream of visitors tasted their way around the winery booths, visited the vendor food stands <who had the BBQ alligator?>, and shopped for candles, wood furniture, photographs, gold and silver jewelry, and arts and crafts.  It was a family affair, and a number of "little ones" were soon adorned with face paintings.  The music drew a crowd to the stage seating, and the Dracula performance was a big hit with all.
