Halloween weekend was full of fabulous fun at the 6th annual Swan and Dolphin Food & Wine Classic! Guests gathered on the causeway that connects the sister resorts to sample approximately 85 wines, over 50 beers including a special event Beer Garden, and numerous tasty treats from sushi to corn dogs. There were also fabulous classes on wines, cocktails, and food pairings. So, start planning a trip for next year's Swan and Dolphin Food & Wine Classic now!
Below are photos of most of the food offerings. You can also find nighttime video footage of the causeway and my sampling the yummy eclair HERE (video via Meerkat).

*Apologies for the photo quality. The sunset and evening lighting, although beautiful, did not work in my favor for photos.
**This event is handicapped accessible. However, some areas with extra power cord lines on the ground were covered. This created several large bumps (with slight ramps over them) on the path towards the carnival corner. I was able to move over them but had to go extremely slowly and be cautious.
