WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. (March 25, 2016) – Time to break out of the winter blues and celebrate spring! If you’re looking to get out and about, the Watkins Glen Area Chamber of Commerce has just the event for you!

Join us for Friday on Franklin on Friday, April 1 (no foolin’!) from 5-8pm featuring wine and craft beverage tastings, delicious food samples, and local shopping. Cost to attend is $10 and includes a souvenir wine glass!

How does the event work? Retail shops serve as event hosts, and they are paired with a local winery, craft beverage producer, restaurant or creamery who will be set up inside of their business offering samples. This is a great chance to support local businesses while enjoying delicious Finger Lakes food and wine.

To participate, simply check-in at the Watkins Glen Area Chamber of Commerce (214 North Franklin Street, Watkins Glen) at the start of the event, where you can also enter to win 4 free tickets to the May Friday on Franklin.
