Third Wheel Tours offering free rides in modern vintage sidecar

Atascadero, Calif. – June 5, 2023: The Atascadero Lakeside Wine Festival will be held on Saturday, June 24, 2023 from 4:00 P.M. to 8:00 P.M. at the Atascadero Lake Park. The Festival showcases premier wines, brews, ciders and spirits from the Central Coast and beyond. Now celebrating its 26th year, attendees may bring a blanket and a low-back chair to enjoy scenic Lake Atascadero and music by Americana Folk singer/songwriter Dulcie Taylor, 3 Drink Minimum, a local band playing Country, Rock, Blues, and Classic Rock for over 15 years, and DJ Medina Light Show Design. This year, attendees will receive $10 in Festival Bucks to spend on food, art, crafts, or donate to the zoo. “Roar-and-Pour” will allow attendees to taste wine while viewing animals in the Charles Paddock Zoo, the only zoo on the Central Coast.

“To elevate the Wine Festival experience, we’ve added some additional fun,” said Julie Matthews, Director of Membership.  “Thanks to Third Wheel Tours, attendees can take a free ride around the beautiful Atascadero Lake in a modern vintage sidecar.  Experience the thrill of axe throwing by A-Town Chop Shop, enjoy a fun photo opportunity provided by 805 Selfie Booth and Lola’s Letters, or paint your very own wine glass while sipping on some incredible wines. There is truly something for everyone.”
