Harvest Festival is a special day in Clear Lake. While some may be mourning the loss of our summer weather, sleeping in and all that entails of lake time fun, I like to use it as a representative turning point etched within the story of our lives.
Sounds dramatic, right?
What I really mean is… it’s typically the first time I break out the skinny jeans and tall boots for the season.
Life is about priorities, people.
This year, the Harvest Festival is celebrating a special milestone… its 15th birthday! And while it will be the same special day we all look forward to and love, there just might be a few added bonuses this year.
First up, y’all need to get your bag ordered. It appears I blinked my eyes and the VIP bags sold out. So if you missed the boat on that one, there’s always next year! There are, however, plenty of General Admission bags still up for grabs. Filled with goodies galore, you definitely want to make sure you snag one of them.
Here’s the LINK to order: https://harvestfestival19.eventbrite.com
And… a little birdy told me there’s something special inside EACH bag this year. I mean, you already know you’re getting an AMAZING tasting glass. But another special gift? YES, PLEASE!!! Also, if you follow us on Facebook, you know you’re also getting an environmentally friendly silicone straw.
Because it’s always wise to drink your wine through a straw… or, something like that. Maybe the straw would best be used for water breaks in between wine stations?
This is solid advice.
So what else? Well, to enhance the special celebration there’s just ‘more’ this year. MORE wineries. MORE gifts. MORE special fun activities. There will even be two cideries in attendance this year.
And yes, cideries is a real word. We looked it up and everything.
To keep yourself in the loop about all things Harvest Fest, be sure to follow the Clear Lake Area Chamber of Commerce FACEBOOK PAGE! There is lots of information posted frequently about the event, the wineries… all the things! Follow us. Like us. Stalk us.
So get those gorgeous boots out of winter storage. Dust ‘em off, order your bag and GET EXCITED. Harvest Festival is just around the corner and you don’t want to miss out!
