Les Bourgeois Vineyards hosted its annual Crush Festival on Saturday. Crush Festival is a celebration of the annual harvest of grapes. Hundreds took advantage of the beautiful weather at the Les Bourgeois A-Frame for the celebration. The fun activities of the day included pumpkin painting, cork crafts, bounce house fun, live music by Primitive Soul and of course grape-stomping fun!
In the photos below, people stomp grapes and celebrate the harvest.
