MOSES LAKE — Wine, shopping and art brought lots of people to downtown Moses Lake on Saturday for Sip and Stroll, put on by the Downtown Moses Lake Association.

This year’s event featured stops at 12 different businesses in downtown Moses Lake, mainly along Third Avenue. Each stop had wine. Some businesses also had art on display or live music.

“It’s fun,” said Laurie Vaillancourt, who was participating in the event for the second time. “I get to see stores I haven’t seen before.”

The event sold out pretty quickly, a first for Sip and Stroll.

“We always come pretty close to that point between 3:30 and 4 o’clock,” said Denise Lloyd, treasurer for the Downtown Moses Lake Association. “It’s never been 1:30 and we’re out of everything. I think the weather has something to do with selling out.”

Registration for the event began online in advance of Saturday’s event. The tickets that weren’t sold online were available for purchase the day of the event. Attendees received a wine cup, 10 tasting tickets and a lanyard.

“Next year, we will definitely up our numbers,” Lloyd said. “We only ordered so much wine and had the vendor bring so much. We had a lot of disappointed people, which is sad.”

Sip and Stroll featured wineries from Moses Lake, Quincy, Royal City and around eastern Washington: Cascade Cellars, Camas Cove Cellars, Beaumont Cellars, Jones of Washington, Chris Daniel Winery, Winchester Estates, Burke Vineyard, La Paz Creek Cellars, Maryhill Cellars, Ceili Winery, Four Lakes Winery and Milbrandt Vineyards. Participants were able to purchase their favorite wines at the end of the event.
