A Fabulous Weekend in Wisconsin Dells!
It was a busy weekend in the Dells as October got started in the best way! Two spectacular events occurred Friday: Pink Partini and the Downtown Wisconsin Dells Wine Walk and both were a huge success. A great time was had by all, from those strolling downtown enjoying specialty wines to others covered head to toe in pink enjoying all the latest fall fashions at Tanger Outlet Mall.
The first annual Wine Walk took place from six to nine on Friday and included 19 tasting locations! Wine enthusiasts began by checking in and receiving their wine glass and guide book which listed all the participating locations along with the wines and deals they were offering. At each location walkers sampled a red and a white wine and enjoyed hors’ devours or desserts paired to enhance that wine. Most of the stores were offering special discounts during the wine walk or handed out coupons to those who stopped in for a glass. Swiss Maid Fudge had a wheel to spin where you could win delicious treats or coupons. Both Robins Nest Restorations and HH Bennet Studio had live music playing to add to the lively atmosphere. Overall the evening was full of fun and good wine! What more could you ask for?!
The second annual Pink Partini took place at Tanger Outlet Mall from six to nine on Friday evening as well. A large tent dominated most of the mall’s parking lot. Upon entering the tent, partygoers were immersed in a pink glow. Gorgeous gold swag bags were handed out at the entrance as well. These were filled with goodies such as mall coupons, a pink pashmina, lip-gloss, fudge and much more! The first two hours consisted of a social with a silent auction, pink themed drinks, mouth watering hors’ devours and desserts, games, cozy couches, a wine tasting, a photo booth with pink accessories, a pink runway and the chance to buy raffle tickets for a car. At eight, those with VIP lanyards took their seats for the fashion show. The whole event raised over $20,000 for breast cancer and four survivors closed the show for an inspirational end to a dazzling evening.
Keep an eye out for information on the 2014 Pink Partini and Wine Walk events. October is sure to be an amazing month with the way it got started. Here’s to haunted houses, fall festivals, delicious chili cook-offs and breast cancer awareness month! Be sure to plan a weekend to Wisconsin Dells to help us celebrate all of this and more.
