“We will be having hors d’oeuvres from Susie’s, live music from The Fault Line Band, food trucks, and of course a great selection of wines from 5 different wineries,” said Davis. “We also have CYM Sweets, a new downtown merchant, who is planning to have a booth set up with some great treats that pair well with wine.”

There are five wineries planned to take part in the event. This includes Hemman Winery, The Boathouse, PrimoVino, Apple Creek and RiverRidge.

The even will begin at 6 p.m. and end at 10 p.m.. Davis said it serves as a fundraiser for Historic Downtown Sikeston.

“The funds raised from this event go to our operating budget for the next year and to help fund future projects,” said Davis.
