FOG is coming

A big family fall wine festival is set to return to the South Okanagan in October.

The Festival of the Grape, FOG, will be held Oct. 5 at the Oliver Recreation Centre.

"We generally attract approximately 3,500 guests to the Festival of the Grape," said Bonnie Dancey, CEO of the South Okanagan Chamber of Commerce."We expect that number to climb closer to 4,000 this year. The word is out the Festival of the Grape is the family fall event to attend to sample some of the world's finest wines and celebrate Okanagan cuisine and culture."

The festival, organized by the chamber of commerce, celebrates the grape harvest in the Okanagan.

Among the highlights are cheering on the parade of wineries, a grape stomping competition, more than 50 Okanagan wineries, food and trade vendors, live entertainment with the Paperboys and the Chateau de Kids Whine Venue, a petting zoo and activities.

Advance tickets cost $23 and $25 at the door.

More information is available on the Festival of the Grape website.
