 Grape Stomps, Hot Air Balloons, Pirates, Fresh Hop Ale and Divas!

What do Grape Stomps, Hot Air Balloons, Craft Beer, Pirates and Divas have in common? Fall is here! Time for this seasons harvest events. We know you’ve been waiting for the best grape stomping parties in the Yakima Valley. It all begins with the Harvest Party at Silverlake Winery. This well known, “Party of the Year,” is an afternoon of live music, grape stomp competitions, limbo and Ice Cold Vinoritas.  In October you get another chance to feel those squishy grapes between your toes again with the Harvest Celebration at Maryhill Winery. Wine tasting, live music, Bocce, grape stomping, barrel tasting, free hot dog and marshmallow roast.  Then save the date for the Great Prosser Balloon Rally, September 25-26-27, 2015. Watch colorful hot air balloons take flight or the Nite Glow of balloons to music. Check out the craft beer at the Yakima Fresh Hop Ale Fest in Downtown Yakima on October 3.  The Pirate Plunder Adventure Race is all about strength, stamina and mud. There will be obstacles to climb over and through and mud. And.. For those Wine Divas, pull on those cowgirl boots and slap on the bling ‘cause Chance McKinney is comin’ to town for the Wine Diva’s Pretty in Pink Event!!!…Read More. #beer festival #fresh hop ale festival #grapestomps #hot air balloon rally #maryhill winery #pirate plunder adventure race #prosser #wine divas #yakima
