Downtown wine walk returns for third season
One of the Downtown Issaquah Association’s main goals is getting more people to enjoy activities in the downtown corridor.
The association hit upon an idea that has grown in popularity and returns for its third season Feb. 7 — the Wine Walk Series.
The formula takes equal parts wine tastings, arts and crafts demonstrations and live music and blends them together for an adults-only crowd. DIA Executive Director Karen Donovan said the combination has proven to be a success, filling a need in a section of the calendar left neglected in the past.
