Food, Wine And Survival This Weekend

It’s a weekend of wine, beer and celebrating survival in Essex County.

This year’s Art of Eating festival puts 24 local wineries, one brewery, and lots of local food on display. The sixth annual event starts Friday at Lakewood Park South in Tecumseh.

In LaSalle, Miss Canada winner Priya Madaan will introduce six-year-old Abbey Sauve at Relay for Life at the Vollmer Culture and Recreation Complex. Sauve is a two-time brain cancer survivor who will take to the stage to sing Katy Perry’s hit “Roar” during the opening ceremony.

Relay for Life starts at 7pm and raises money for the Canadian Cancer Society.
