The Owensboro Convention Center is hosting their sixth annual “Happy HalloWine” Cork & Cuisine event on October 27. In addition to the five-course meal, there will be a costume contest and other chances to win prizes.

“The creativity the team puts into this event makes it one of the most unique and the most fun food, wine, and spirits pairing events we do all year,” said General Manager Jeff Esposito.

Attendees will also be educated about the wines and spirits chosen to pair with each course.

Tickets are $75 per person or two for $130 and include all wines and spirits. Reservations must be made and the event is for those age 21 and older.
