LET US TELL YOU ABOUT THE DAY YOU WILL HAVE IN AURORA!
Give yourself plenty of time to enjoy Aurora. Many shops begin opening at 10am with the event and wine pouring beginning at 11am. When you arrive in Aurora, you will check in (watch here for convenient location and time). You will be given your Passport which will include a map location of the wine/chocolate tasting locations and a bag that includes wine glasses and “Aurora Bucks”, coupons that you can spend during the day. The tasting locations are scattered around Aurora’s historic downtown and all but two are within easy walking distance of each other. While you travel between these stops, you can take in the whole of Aurora’s shopping and site-seeing as well as the Old Aurora Colony Museum. You will travel at your own pace and see as many shops as you wish. A public restroom is in the center of this area.
Wear clothing appropriate to the weather and comfortable walking shoes. Parking is available throughout town; park on the street or in one of the marked Event Parking areas within this five-square-block radius. (You will not need to move your car around.)
Aurora has several places to get additional refreshment and lunch. These include Scatter Creek Junction, Christa’s Cafe, The Colony Pub, and White Rabbit Bakery.
