EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - Hundreds of people walked through downtown Evansville with a glass of wine in their hand for the annual Spring Wine Walk on Friday night.

The Spring Wine Walk encourages residents of Evansville to explore the local businesses along Main Street.

Downtown Evansville partnered with Oliver Winery from Bloomington to serve a wide selection of wines. Walkers even had the opportunity to try a new wine that hasn’t been distributed yet.

Every attendee was handed a list of local shops to visit. The people that came out say it’s a great way to check out businesses they have never been to before.

”It’s a really cool event for people that don’t usually go downtown, cause there’s so many cool shops down here that we’ve heard about that we just never get to see,” first-time attendee Briley Brinkman said. “So I think it’s good for the community.”

“I’ve been here for about a year and a half now, but I still stopped at three new places,” second-time attendee Jasmine Street said. “So I think the city’s doing really great funding these kinds of events to get people out of the house and explore downtown Evansville.”

The Wine Walk completely sold out, totaling 1,000 tickets.

Another Wine Walk event is set to be held in August.
