The past weekend South Florida was pulsing with multiple outdoor food and wine festivals, each having events that spanned several days. Chief among them was the Boca Raton Wine + Food Festival and the Flavors of Fort Lauderdale event. And, if that wasn’t enough, the same weekend there was a Delray Wine +Seafood Festival, Lake Park Seafood Festival and some Peruvian Culinary Festival in Miami.
What’s a gal to do? One can only eat and sip so much.
At first (in my mind) I questioned the event planners. Didn’t they check the social calendar to be sure there was nothing else planned so they could maximize visitors? I don’t know the answer, but the two events I went to were very well-attended so they didn’t seem to suffer any.
