Celebrate before the Belmont Stakes race at the historic Old Mansion in Bowling Green, home to some of America's first thoroughbred horse racing and with a length of lawn that famously gives the Town its name. Friends and families will gather for tastings from some of the best wineries in the region, including Horton Vineyards, Mattaponi Winery, Sassafras Shade, Castle Glen Farms and Caret Cellars. If you're interested in a cold crafted microbrew, choose from an assortment of brews offered by Three Notch'd Brewing Company, which should pair perfectly with the delicious fare from The Bavarian Chef! Bring a chair or a blanket and relax under the shade of an evergreen tree. Kids can enjoy lawn games and activities with the Caroline YMCA. Live music performed by the Fredericksburg Big Band will fill the air and the Williamsburg Lawn Bowling Club will invite crowds to join in a friendly game of bowling on the green.
