PHOTOS: Scenes from opening night of the Poverty Bay Wine Festival

The 12th annual Poverty Bay Wine Festival fundraiser was uncorked Friday night, and attendees got into the spirit by using the hashtag #drinktomusic.

The fest continues today – Saturday, March 5 – from Noon – 9 p.m. at the Des Moines Beach Park Auditorium.

Tickets are available at the door, and in addition to tasting over 20 wines, you can enjoy unplugged live music from Rod Cook (2:30-4 p.m.), Kevin Jones (4:30-6 p.m.) and Brian Butler (6:30-8 p.m.).
