For September it was cool, don't get me wrong it was still hot but not that standard September melting hot that we're used to. The weather was great and helped to bring out thousands of people to taste wine, food and beer while enjoying cooking demos, live music, live sculpting, vendors and more.
Kicking off the live demonstrations was Lily Halabi of Lily's Cakes in Harker Heights.
Demonstrating how to ice and shape a cake, Lily led a crowd in her "secret" methods of
creating those beautiful cakes.
The culinary red carpet was rolled out for our judges, with competitors cooking, brewing and crafting the perfect samples all trying to win over the taste buds of the judges to take home the winning medal.
A few thousand guests were estimated to have cycled through the gates at the event visiting dozens of our vendors, wine makers, craft breweries, food trucks and artists making the event one of the most successful Food, Wine and Brew Festivals yet.
