Temecula Valley Balloon and Wine Festival

My summer has finally begun! The last few months I have been fairly low-key in preparation for a busy month ahead of me. For starters and to welcome the month of June, I drove up to Temecula, California on Saturday to attend the Temecula Valley Balloon and Wine Festival. Temecula Valley is ground zero for the wine lovers of Southern California.

Unfortunately, I was not able to see the hot air balloons take off as they launched at 6:00am each day, but the afternoon and evening festivities made up for it. There were vendors, live music, food trucks galore, plenty of wine, beer, beverages and desserts. One of my favorite things about festivals is most definitely the food! From corn dogs to pizza, to funnel cakes and deep fried oreos >>> it smelled like heaven. This is quite the photo but this gyro was one of the intricate options they had available. It was difficult to eat, but it was delicious!

The afternoon was then spent shopping and wondering around before the concerts and might I add.. it was HOT. I did not dress appropriately for the afternoon but once the sun went down, I was glad I planned my attire ahead.

As for the live music, I was taken back in time to a younger version of myself. Plain White T’s and Daughtry set the stage as the sun set. You can’t go wrong with great company, nostalgic tunes, and a beautiful view of the Temecula Valley Mountains! (I am a sucker for landscape views!)

{{ FYI… I do NOT drink Bud Light. The cup is deceiving. The funny thing is considering I was at a wine festival.. I didn’t drink wine! The IPAs were calling my name… }}

As the sun set on a glorious weekend, there are many more to come this month! May your summer days be filled with joy this month!

{{ Again.. I can’t contain my excitement! Summer is finally here! FUN HINT: My next post may or may not be from Catalina! }}
