Day 1 of 4: Grand Tasting On the verge of Hurricane Nicole, the show must go on! Inside a HUGE tent in Highlands, NC, our friends at Paris Mountain Marketing brought us along to capture footage from the opening event for the Highlands Food and Wine Festival and create this recap video. This event sold out (ALL TICKETS TO ALL EVENTS) in 15 minutes. That's wild.
What you WON'T see is the floor being nearly completely formed of mud! Even with the size of the tent, the amount of rain outside was still saturating the ground everywhere -- even under this tent! Nothing stopped the food from being eaten, the drinks from being served, and the band from playing!
It was a KILLER party. Stoked about the rest of the event.
4 more events in 3 days. Let's go!
