In ways the annual Grape Festival is a very predictable event with the usual carnival rides, many of the same vendors, grape murals and table settings. So what makes us go? For some it’s the plate of chile verde and cold beer. Others enjoy the many and varied art exhibits, the live entertainment ranging from folksy tap dancing to professional rock bands, or the people watching. That’s my favorite! You’ll see where my camera took me (unapologetically) with the following gallery called “Faces of the Lodi Grape Festival”. Click here or on one of the thumbnails below.
