Rain could not stop people from coming out and tasting wines from across the globe on Friday. The annual Kirkwood Wine Stroll saw wine enthusiasts ready for the weather with umbrellas and rain jackets as they went from spot to spot trying the delicious vino. Live music and food were also on the menu as well as offerings from the neighborhood businesses.

Sponsored by the Kirkwood Business Owners Association, the wine stroll is in its ninth year.
