Skydivers to visit Irvington Stomp
|Although fun for all ages, the Irvington Stomp knows how to cater to kids.|
“It should be pretty spectacular,” said Bill Westbrook, owner of White Fences. “We’re putting out a small target right in the middle of the Stomp and the skydiver who lands on the bulls-eye wins a case of Meteor wine.”
West Point Skydiving Adventures’ owner Jim Crouch said hitting a small target shouldn’t be a problem for experienced skydivers. “These folks have made hundreds of jumps and know their stuff. It should be quite a show for the Stomp though.”
In addition to skydiving, this year’s Irvington Stomp features Robbin Thompson in concert, dog agility demonstrations and hayrides, face painting and a petting zoo. And, of course, lots of Lucille Ball-type grape stomping. Food will be available.
The Irvington Stomp is Saturday, September 5, from 3 p.m. until dusk at White Fences Vineyard on Irvington Road in Irvington. Tickets at the gate are only $10 for adults, $5 for kids ages 6-16. Kids under 6 are free. For more information, visit http://www.irvingtonstomp.com.
