Galleries were aglow with bright lights and festive displays of food and wine intermingled with special art exhibits.
Linda Busse is a Whitehall artist who was showing off her talents at Gallery Uptown.
“I love to talk with people and talk about art,” she said. “I enjoy interacting with people, especially with children.”
Shops were bustling with people and parking spots were hard to come by during the event, as people hurried from one store to the next during the frigid night.
Marilyn Hass, owner of Grand Haven Vinegar and Oil, didn’t have wine at her store, but she did have several pieces of art on display, along with vinegar and oil samples.
“It just brings everyone together,” Hass said of Wine About Winter. “Who doesn’t love a winter event?”
