Sprucing Up Tombstone

locals and tourists are getting excited for the 1st Tombstone Wine Celebration taking place October 6th and 7th.

John Kovacs, owner of Sandor Vineyards out of Pearce, AZ has footed the bill for paint and labor to spruce up the city park. Also helping with the park is Tami Long, Daryl Long, Spike Livingston and John S. Johnson.

So far, the group has been painting the fence and gates and will be painting the light poles along the sidewalk and the gazebo.

“I want to thank all of these kind folks for their willingness to come in and donate their time and money to paint and clean up the city park for their upcoming event,” said Mayor Escapule.

The Tombstone Wine Celebration will provide an excellent opportunity to sample High Lonesome Vineyard wines as well as wines from Sandor Vineyards, Aridus Wine Company, Kief Joshua Vineyards, Four Tails, Laramita Cellars, Golden Rule Vineyards, and Silver Strike Winery.
