The Escondido History Center is gearing up for its big event of the year, the Grape Day Discovery Fes­tival on October 1, 2–8 p.m. at the center, located at Grape Day Park.

The day will include raffles for Disneyland tickets, In-N-Out Burgers, gift cards, sporting event tickets and tickets to Balboa Park attractions.

There will be games, arts and crafts, a grape stomp (of course!), bake sale, dance competition, pie eating contest, beer and wine garden, and various forms of live entertainment. Bring your dancing shoes!

History Center Director Stacey Elli­son describes the Grape Day Discov­ery as being “Kinda old but new again.” The festival is being held in October in­stead of September, the time when the event was held for many years.

The Escondido History Center is located in Grape Day Park at 321 N. Broadway, Escondido.
