If you are anywhere near Niagara Falls (Ontario or New York), do yourself a favor and take in some of the Niagara Grape and Wine Festival events on the Canadian (Ontario) side over the coming 10 days.
The events -- parades, tastings, winery tours, gala -- take place on various days and times, so check with their website (above) for specific details.
While winery pros and tourism types are involved in promoting and running parts of the festival, much of the work is courtesy of dedicated volunteers.
And food, wine and harvest parades? Hey, that's the recipe for a good time! For some pictures of Niagara and the Falls, check my website at SnapshotJourneys.com
