It Was the Most Ideal Day for Alexandria’s Food & Wine Festival

Alexandria's Food & Wine Festival 2013

With cooperating weather, a plethora of people came out to play (drink, eat, watch, listen, even get active) Saturday for the 2nd Annual Alexandria’s Food & Wine Festival held right in John Carlyle Square.  Familiar voices and faces were at the mic on stage, shaded from the sun belonging to Kelly Collis and Tommy McFly of 94.7 FRESH FM and the ever so debonair and Scott Thuman of ABC 7.

Kids (and some adults) got their faces painted, anyone could Zumba, there was plenty of action going on between live music, tastings, moon bouncing, and sometimes, just plain old hanging out to catch the rays.

The restaurant and dish winners were announced: Trademark for Bacon Candy (appetizer), Walker’s Grille for Scallop Dish (main course), and Alexandria Cupcake for well, their cupcakes (dessert).
