Enjoy an afternoon at the 13th annual Lazy River Beer & Wine Fest Saturday, June 24, on the bank of the Mississippi River in Marquette.
The annual event is a fundraiser for the McGregor/Marquette Chamber of Commerce. Participants include four wineries, a new cidery and six breweries, all from Iowa.
“It’s a great chance to sample a huge variety of flavors from our region in an unforgettable setting,” said Chamber Executive Director Mary Willie.
The event runs from 2 to 6 p.m., and includes unlimited wine and beer sampling, a commemorative glass, food vendors and music by The Guthries.
Those craving a special experience can hop on board Maiden Voyage Tours and enjoy a 90-minute educational and musical cruise on the Mississippi River with captain Robert Vavra. VIP tickets are available for the cruise, which leaves at 12:45 p.m. and brings passengers back in time for the sampling event. VIP tickets include music and lunch provided with the tour, along with the sampling event.
Save room for a late lunch or piece of pie from Jayco Fish, Sadie’s Sweet Shop or Lily’s Tacos.
Tickets are available by visiting the “Events” tab at www.mcgreg-marq.org. Tickets will also be available for sale on the day of the event.
