Congratulations to the volunteer organizers behind Sunday’s highly successful Locals’ Day at the Lompoc Wine Ghetto.

Despite rain and cool temperatures, several hundred Lompoc and VAFB residents descended on the jewel located in their own backyard, the collection of 18 different wine labels housed in the Sobhani Industrial Park, a.k.a the “Wine Ghetto.”

The event also included food from four vendors — Cecco Ristorante of Solvang, Crocs Sandwiches, American Host Catering and Bell Street Farms.

Sunday’s event was the second annual, and organizers plan to bring it back in 2013.
