What happened though, is that I became a victim of my overactive imagination. I had visions of running through the orchards with lights strung along the sides and overhead. A kind of light tunnel if you will, almost like the launch tube at Space Mountain.
|Kind of like this, only with grapes....and no carpet.|
There was one thing that worked in our favor however. Since the outside light displays were somewhat underwhelming, everybody crammed their way inside the wineries to do a little wine tasting. This left Lori and I with the outside areas of the wineries to ourselves. Unsupervised....
It was only the second year of Light up the Vines, so there's definitely potential for it to get better. All it would take is for one winery to really go all out creating a great display and this would become a must see event. For now though, it's not going to satisfy my urge to see fancy Christmas light displays. Maybe next year. We'll probably be back as long as they don't add outdoor supervision to the program.
