Grape Stomping Festival
Many may remember that iconic episode of "I Love Lucy" where "the most famous redhead of all" stomps grapes while working at a vineyard. Attendees of Irvin-House Vineyards' Grape Stomping Festival will get the chance to relive one of the most memorable moments in television as Lucy Look-A-Like contestants get down and dirty with native muscadine grapes. The 11th annual festival will feature live music, local craft vendors, a jump castle, face painting, hula hoops and more. Local food vendors such as Coastal Crust, Home Team BBQ, Stono Cafe, Dulce Truck, King of Pops and Ben & Jerry's will be on-site. Tastings in the Firefly Vodka distillery and Irvin-House Vineyard winery will be available; $6 to taste six of 24 flavors of Firefly spirits and $5 to sample five wines. Visitors are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or a blanket; coolers are not permitted. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Frierson Elementary School.
