The sun is starting to peak out and springtime is almost here. We’ve all spent our fair share of time separated from participating in community events in Racine county. Further, these events follow safety precautions and prioritize protecting attendees from contracting COVID-19. As winter tucks itself away and Wisconsin begins to brighten up, more events are happening nearby.
Check out these five events happening in Racine County this March.
1. Spring Wine Trail
2 Fancie Gals are hosting an event called Spring Wine Trail in Burlington, Wisconsin on March 13 from 1 p.m. until 5 p.m. to benefit the non-profit organization, Music Matters. This local organization has put over $100,000 back into music programs here in Burlington, including their free instrument loan and grant programs.
Tickets to this event cost $40 plus a $5 processing fee. Each participant receives 30 wine tastings at 20 locations all within walking distance. There will also be live music at 2 Fancie Gals, 225 E Jefferson St. Burlington, WI. Each of the locations will be serving food. Further, most of the destinations offer shopping. Also, complimentary bottles of wine will be distributed to participants at the end of the trail.
Food will be served in a safe manner. Social distancing is also encouraged. Further, the small groups of participants will be given timetables to reduce large groups at one location. To purchase tickets, contact 262-758-6210 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
