Corks were popping all night long at the Kenan Center on 
Saturday as part of their fourth annual wine and beer fest.
The Kenan Center's third annual Niagara Wine & Beer Tasting Festival went off without a hitch Saturday night despite getting no help from Mother Nature.

The event featured 12 wineries, mostly from the Niagara Wine Trail, and 11 breweries including Woodcock Brothers Brewery from Wilson, Flying Bison from Buffalo and West Seneca's McKenzie's Hard Cider.

According to the Kenan Center, there were less than 100 tickets unsold out of 1,100 available.

Spotted at the event were Town of Lockport Supervisor Marc Smith, North Park Junior High Principal Ryan Schoenfeld, Niagara County Legislator Tony Nemi, former County Legislator Glenn Aronow, Economic Development Director Chuck Bell, Main Street Inc.'s Heather Peck, Bob Hagen, Laurie Ferris from the YMCA, Kathy Jackson from the YWCA, LPD's Steve Ritchie, business owner Tony Weiland, and local artist and photographer Alec Maslowski.

There was live music interspersed with a disc jockey at the event.

There was more than just beer and wine on hand, there were also specialty foods like oils and spices from Lakefront Olive Orchard.

Each patron was given a small tasting glass as well as a tasting journal and reference guide. 

Although the Kenan Arena was filled with people, the lines kept moving all night. There were few complaints.
