Hundreds of people took over the streets of Kirkwood for the 10th annual Kirkwood Wine Stroll on Friday, Sept. 23. Each year the Kirkwood Business Owners Association sponsors the event that closes Hosea L. Williams Drive in the heart of the neighborhood as people come out to enjoy the evening with samples of wine from around the world, food and music. Proceeds from the Wine Stroll will be used to enhance the downtown business district and help fund other Kirkwood organizations and events.
