Weekend sparkled with wines, brews, music and art

The 14th Annual Fine Art and Wine Festival Father’s Day weekend, Friday-Sunday (June 16-18) in Red River’s Brandenburg Park once again found the weather sunny – and warm, which encouraged lots of folks to come out for wine and brew samples and plenty of shopping for one-of-a-kind art, wearable art and crafts.
