Looking for something to do this weekend?

The 3rd Annual Crocker Park Wine Festival kicked off Friday night with tons of wine, beer, spirits… and a lot more wine.

Local restaurants, including Bistro83 and Manny’s Mac & Cue, are also on grounds serving up their specialties, along with live music and dessert seminars.

While you’re enjoying a glass of Pinot Noir and scarfing down a bowl of Lobster Mac & Cheese, make sure you head over to the Wine & Canvas tent where you’ll receive a free art lesson and your very own, take-home canvas creation.

The festival runs September 13th-14th in the grass field next to Trader Joe’s. Festivities start back up today at 2 p.m and tickets are 22 bucks a pop.
