11409 Marsh Road, Bealeton. 6:30-10:30 p.m.
Come for a variety of wines, finger foods, and dancing at the Halloween Bash with the Silver Tones Swing Band. A classic Halloween tradition, psychics and tarot card readers (not included in ticket price) will lend a spooky feel to the night. Play the blind taste test wine game, guessing if you are drinking Morais wines or an imposter! As always with the Silver Tones Swing Band, there will be a dance lesson at 7 p.m. so you can brush up your skills and tear up the dance floor! Although this is a family friendly winery, this event will be geared towards the adult audience only. No one under the age of 21 will be admitted and unfortunately, our furry friends will also need to sit this one out. https://www.facebook.com/events/465855520562777/
