This weekend in Northport: the 25th annual Northport Wine Festival – and 16th annual Northport Dog Parade, where canines and their human handlers will take to the streets in costumes representing this year’s “Old Un-Salty Dog” theme. The parade begins at 1 p.m., Saturday, August 11 at the Mill Pond on Third Street in Northport. The Northport Wine Festival follows, from 2 p.m. until 6 p.m., in Northport’s Haserot Park, located at 105 Rose Street. What's new? This year's wine festival will feature only wines of the Northern Wine Loop – 11 wineries and cideries located in the northern tip of the Leelanau Peninsula. Also, festival organizers are inviting all wine fest guests to vote on their favorite wine and food pairings for its first annual People’s Choice award. Food will be provided by area restaurants including The North End Eatery, knot Just a Bar, Stubb’s, Deep’s Corner Store, the Bluebird restaurant, and Pleva’s Specialty Meats.
