On Saturday, thousands walked through Sea Terrace Park to attend the fourth annual Orange County Food, Wine & Music Festival.
More than 30 restaurants and 40 breweries had options for attendees to try. There were also more than 50 different wines from the world.
“It was bigger than last year,” said Event Coordinator Peter Melton. “It’s amazing.”
Throughout the day, thousands walked through the park to try the different foods from the area, including Dana Point’s The Shwack Bar & Grill.
“This is my first time here,” said Dana Point resident Katie Katie Genschaw. “There’s beautiful landscape, great food.”
Anaheim Hills resident Christie Lusk heard about the event from friends who live in the city. She and her friends attended last year’s event and say this year was an improvement.
“There’s better variety this year,” Lusk said. “It’s also a better deal this time.”
Melton said the overall event was different from last year, but Eventweks, the event organizers, wanted just that.
“We wanted people to be able to come and hang out with their friends,” Melton said. “And look, that’s what’s happening.”
The event ran throughout the day with different musical performances, including a DJ, games provided by Wacka Kickball & Social Sports and more.
