I’m smiling as I type this because I plan to grape stomp at the September’s 26thAnnual GrapeFest.DFW Mamas, please join me!

The festival will be held in Grapevine, TX from September 13th thru the 16th and there’s something for everyone. Not only does this festival boast of premium wines, but there will be winery tasting tours, live music, food, a Kid Zone, and a GrapeStomp.

Unfortunately, the GrapeStomp competition is for those 13 and older (my nine year old was upset by this). However, after perusing the website, children may stomp for fun at no charge.

There will be daily session times for the two member team with the GrapeStomp Grand Championship Stomp-Off on Sunday, September 18that 4:00 pm.

How could any ‘I Love Lucy’ fan possibly deny themselves a chance to stomp grapes?

Below are the official rules. For more information, please click here for a hyperlink to the GrapeStomp.
