Classic Race Cars and LambWritten by John Wood on 2009-05-31 18:01:47
I just wanted to pop in a quick entry about my experience yesterday just outside the town of Sonoma in the Los Carneros wine region. I started the day at the Wine Country Classic Vintage Car Races at Infineon Raceway. At first it was a little overcast, but the clouds cleared up by noon. I would imagine this event would be an exotic car buff's dream come true. Lamborghinis, Lotuses, Ferraris were in abundance as were many other golden age cars of the past. I'm not a car buff, but this was truly a unique and very cool event. I just wish I had more time to hang out, there was a lot to see. But I had already committed to go to the Carneros Heritage Fest by 2.
So, then it was off to the Carneros Heritage Fest about 3 miles away. I was welcomed by a sea of kites. The festival is held in a wide open space that gives you the great feeling of taking pause and realizing, "It's a beautiful day!" Lots of things for kids to do and, of course, the wine was flowing, plus I enjoyed some of the best lamb dishes I have ever had in my life. Thumbs up!
UPADATE: Monday June 1st - The Russian River Beer Revival & BBQ Cookoff tickets go on sale today. This is one of my favorite festivals and tickets always sell out fast. No tickets at the door, so get your tickets now or miss out on one of the best Sonoma County events. If I had 1 event to go to every year, this would be it. Friendly people and good times for all.
