This is it. The summer has flown by, and Labor Day Weekend is here. My boys go back to school on Tuesday. Life will resume some semblance of order during my days, but I’ll be sad. We always spend Labor Day Weekend at the pool with our friends, eating good food, soaking up some sun, and whining about the end of summer.
If you’re looking for something to do this holiday weekend, a wine festival might be just the thing. I’ve hunted down several around the country, but this isn’t all of them. There might be one near you that I haven’t listed. A quick Google search should find one for you.
- New Mexico Wine Festival at Bernalillo – Over 20 New Mexico wineries plus food vendors will be on hand for this three-day event.
- Nauvoo Grape Festival – This is the 74th year for this Illinois festival is much more than wine.
- Jazz It Up Wine Festival – This is New Jersey’s largest yearly wine festival held at Allaire State Park in Farmingdale.
