Are you ready to join in the stomping fun? Ramona Grape Stomp offers a delightful time for the whole family!
Feel the grapes between your toes during a turn in the stomping tub, and enjoy samples of award-winning local wines and craft beer. With more than 40 artisan and merchant vendors, the event provides a great chance to get some holiday shopping done in advance.
Or perhaps you’ll find other treasures during the silent auction. Kids will enjoy face painting and other fun activities, including their own stomping tub.
“This is the second year of the event,” says Kim Lasley, president of Ramona Rotary, which is co-sponsoring the event with Ramona Valley Vineyard Association and Ramona Senior Center. “And it’s going to be a lot bigger than last year.”
Entertaining for participants and spectators alike, the grape stomp competition is always a fun time and allows guests to show off their prowess in the stomping tub. And Lasley says that this year there will be even more competitions.
“They were so popular last year that we decided to add more,” she says.
The event is scheduled for Sept. 8 from noon to 5 p.m. at the Ramona Outdoor Community Center, 421 Aqua Lane. Visit www.ramonagrapestomp.com.
