It's that time of the year again...time to pretend that you're Lucy and stomp some grapes. You can do that at Lakeridge Winery in Clermont during the 24th Annual Harvest Festival, which runs from June 20 to 22. If you prefer something a little less strenuous, relax and enjoy a wine tasting, stroll around the craft booths, or kick back and listen to the soothing sounds of live music. Food booths will also be on hand, so plan to make a day of it. Seating is limited, so you're welcome to bring your own chairs.

Click the slideshow accompanying this article for scenes from last year's festival. Admission is only $2, and it benefits the Cornerstone Hospice Foundation.
