This is the sixth time I've been to the summer one and I've also been to the winter ones. It was a nice day for it ... sunny and warm.
Tickets (which included the tasting mug) were $25 in advance. Tasting tokens were $1 each. I had six left from last year and started with those (Darlene and I split a 10-pack later on).
The gates opened at noon. I got there about 12:20pm and there was a long line-up to get in ... Darlene was ahead of me in line so I joined her (and then Jennifer arrived). We still had about a fifteen minute wait to get in. Every year there is a giveaway to the first couple hundred people ... this year it was a fanny pack but we weren't there early enough to get one.

Though it was fun, it seemed like there was less this year ... less providers, food and entertainment.
