Scene Around Town: Grape Stomp

On Saturday, Oct 3rd O’More College of Design in Franklin hosted the 6th annual Grape Stomp Festival, a benefit for A Vintage Affair.

Whether your notion of grape stomping conjures up romantic images of Keanu Reeves and his love interest in the 1995 film A Walk in the Clouds, or of the iconic scene from the famous I Love Lucy “Grape Stomping” episode, those bold enough to brave the messiness stomped barefoot in competition against others in a tournament bracket-style competition. And, many of them did it in costume as crazy costumes are highly encouraged at the annual Grape Stomp.

The stomping was all or a great cause too. All proceeds went to A Vintage Affair, a non-profit 501(c) (3) organization dedicated to raising money for Williamson County charities benefiting women and children in need. AVA hosts various events throughout the year. Learn more about A Vintage Affair here.
