LANSING, Ill. (May 8, 2021) – More businesses were serving alcohol than usual on Ridge Road Saturday afternoon as part of Wine Walk 2021. Started in 2019 and cancelled last year, the walk brought out over 80 participants to visit local businesses and try various wines along the way.
Organized and run by the Lansing Area Chamber of Commerce, the wine walk started at Fox Pointe around noon when participants received a lanyard to identify themselves at participating businesses. They also received a list of businesses and addresses to visit. Later in the afternoon, the crowd wrapped up the walk at the Chamber of Commerce office.
Each business participating received wine from the Chamber of Commerce to hand out to participants. The event serves not only as a fun event for walkers, but as a way for local businesses to get more exposure and market their businesses.
