Busch Gardens Food & Wine Festival – Social Media Night! Thank you to Bruce, Virginia, Chef Justin Watson and the Busch Gardens marketing team for putting on another fun social media event for the new Food & Wine Festival!
It was just an enjoyable day and evening just walking around sampling everything at the various kiosks around the park. We were there for about 7 hours and didn’t even have time to ride any rides, which I am glad that it brings on a whole new experience at the park!
So here are some of the photos of what we sampled ( taken with my Samsung Galaxy SII phone) Sorry, I didn’t get a chance to take much video this trip.
Scotland – Scottish Toffee – Fudge like Toffee with Almonds & Chocolate
Ireland – Guinness Black Lager
Scandinavia – Gravad Lax Rarakor – Cured Salmon on a Potato Pancake with Sweet Mustard & Dill Sauce
Crepes & Coffee – Fraises de Vin et de Creme Crepe – Sweet Wine-soaked Strawberry & Creme Crepe
Belgium – Hoegaarden

One ride I don’t think I will ever have the courage to go on! Just the view makes my stomach hurt watching the Griffon!
