Party in the vineyard- Food Truck Eats 2016

This past weekend-- called the May 24 weekend- is the unofficial start of summer here in Canada. 'Cottages are open and cases of beer are consumed by hard working Canadians' according to this website.... or in our case, wine! A few choice glasses were consumed at the Peller Estates Food Truck Eats this last Monday. Think a vineyard party complete with gourmet food trucks, different varietals of wine and live music! 

From the car-- in between two carseats as eight of us drove in together.   




Quite a few of us purchased tickets (early as at $15 an adult and $5 per kid this event sells out fast)for the family day at Peller Estates, a beautiful winery in the Niagara on the Lake region. There were about 20 different luxury food trucks and pop up vendors serving up a variety of meals for even the pickiest palate.... think mushroom poutine, ahi tuna tacos, gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches and fresh oysters just to name a few tasty treats! 

 There were also 10 different varietals to choose from. And at 1 complimentary (5 oz) tasting and  $6 a glass  I didn't think it was  badly priced at all-- and  a water station with both still and sparkling #fancynancy


Of course I saved all my acrylic glasses for the pool this summer. Waste not, want not :-)


The day was beautiful....lots of blazing sun... thank goodness I listened to my friend Jenn (who told us about the event in the first place) and didn't wear jeans or leggings! 

  



 D and I split a strawberry balsamic ice cream-- soooo good!

I love C's expression in this shot.  Imagine if someone tried to take a bite!
 
 


Such a fun day to start the summer!!!


Bring on the heat! (and a glass or two of our favourite bevvies)

Linking up with Annie and Amanda.
