Downtown Came Alive For The Wine & Beer Stroll.

Downtown Hollister Hosts Wine & Beer Stroll on Saturday, May 3rd

Saturday afternoon, downtown Hollister bustled with excitement during the Downtown Wine & Beer Stroll.

The annual event, is put on by the Hollister Downtown Association and was a great success last year. With the recent announcement of getting San Benito Street back from the state, there was anticipation for an even better turnout this year.

As expected, neither the attendance nor the weather were a disappointment at this year’s outdoor affair.  Local restaurants, businesses and offices, hosted guests with tastings of a variety of local and specialty brews and wines. 

Attendees of all ages strolled the sidewalks in groups and couples enjoying great tastes and conversations.
