The grape stomping should prove fun for everyone as Co-Sponsors Main Source Bank and Cowboy Food Stores invite you to participate in the laughs, purple feet and red faces of the Swiss Wine Festival's "Grape Escape" Grape Stomp. For over 40 years the Grape Stomp has provoked participants to forfeit both dignity and shoes for a romping, stomping good time.
The kids will have a great time on the amusement rides or watching many of shows. There is so much to do at the Swiss Wine Festival including the beer gardens, live entertainment, grape stomping, parade, fireworks, polka dancing and the list goes on.
