The Lakeport Main Street Association (LMSA) was looking forward to bringing back the Taste of Lake County (TOLC) this year since most COVID restrictions have been relaxed. But as new COVID infections are rising and [due to] the presence of the delta variant we think it would be more prudent to cancel this event, which was scheduled for Sat, Aug 28th. The TOLC is an eating & drinking event that involves the participant going from table to table tasting wines/brews and food samples from various wineries, breweries, restaurants and eateries. After the tastings, there is a street dance that closes out the night. With the TOLC less than a month away the LMSA believes that continuing with this type of eating and drinking event, although outside, would not be wise. We encourage everyone to stay safe during this difficult time.
