Wine, Chocolate and Great Weather Made Downtown Middletown a Happening Place Saturday Afternoon


MIDDLETOWN, OH -- It turned out to be a wonderful sunny summer day for the ladies in south western Ohio who like wine and chocolate. 

Event goers met at The Windamere to get their goody bag that consisted of a wine glass, chocolate box, coupon book and bottle of water.

 Downton Middletown held its 9th Annual Women's Wine and Chocolate Walk. The event helps local downtown merchants market their shops while woman 21 and older enjoy time together drinking wine, eating chocolates and shopping the local vendors.

Wine glasses set up and ready to grab.
Each ticket holder received a goodie bag to carry their chocolates, water and other important items during their walk.
All the wines that were being sampled were also available for sale.

While some who came were "regulars".... knowing the drill and wearing matching shirts, others were new explaining that even though this was their first time, they were coming back next year.

Ladies who held experience and knowledge of Middletown's Women Wine and Chocolate Walk could be spotted as many wore matching t-shirts.

Groups of women who had made Middletown's Women Wine and Chocolate Walk a tradition were easily spotted as they walked the streets with matching shirts. 

This group of women used Brittany Spears "Hit Me Baby One More Time" to "Sip me Baby."
