[AUG. 25, 2004]  For the second year Main Street Lincoln will present The Art of Wine. This event will feature nine Illinois wineries showcasing their finest products. You will find the tent directly in front of the courthouse on the square in downtown Lincoln.

Admission into the tent is free; participation is $8, which includes a commemorative glass and five sample tickets. Additional tickets may be purchased for 50 cents each.  Each winery will have bottles available for take-home sales. 

The fun begins each day with the tent opening at 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 28, and Sunday, Aug. 29.

On Saturday the Illinois Brassworks will provide entertainment from 7 to 11 p.m. The fantastic "Who Let the Dogs Out" art deco dog auction will be at 8 p.m. 

The 12 fiberglass dogs have been uniquely decorated by local artists. Each piece of art tells its own story. Their beauty and charm are sure to warm their way into your heart and home.

The dogs have been on display in store windows throughout the downtown. They will be moved to The Art of Wine tent on Saturday.

Two dogs will compete in a silent auction. The remaining 10 will be in a live auction. If you are unable to attend when the 10 are auctioned off, feel free to place a silent bid, or you may make arrangements with the front desk to participate in the live auction over the phone.

Sunday's entertainment will be a first for Lincoln. There will be a grape stomp competition at 1 p.m.

All this, plus wine classes, promises a fun weekend at the Lincoln Art and Balloon Festival's Art of Wine.
