Can you think of a better way to kick off Adopt-a-Shelter-Dog month, also known as October, than with some fine food, wine and music in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains?
Neither can I.
Wine, Whiskers and Song is a benefit for the Roanoke Valley SPCA and will be held at Blue Ridge Vineyards in Eagle Rock on Saturday, Oct. 4, from noon until 5 p.m.
Dogs are invited to bring their well-behaved humans to the event, as long at least one human remains properly tethered to the end of each dogs’ leash.
Admission is $10 for the I’m-over-21-and-can-prove-it wine tasters, $8 for no-thanks-I’m-driving festival goers. A souvenir wine glass is included in the tasters’ admission fee.
Food from Teaberry’s will be available for purchase, and the music is courtesy of the Blink Moon Boys.
