So many great photos were posted at #tasteofcarlsbadvillage that it was, once again, hard to choose. But, the winners of the 3rd Annual Taste of Carlsbad Village Photo Contest are in the history books. First place (seen above) goes to @shaniyehezkel whose photo shows the energy and good vibe in Carlsbad Village during the event, and her post sums up the night perfectly with, "I loved visiting all of my favorite spots and discovering new local businesses with my friends and neighbors. Amazing food, live music, and drinks." @shaniyehezkel you've won a $100 gift card to a Taste of Carlsbad Village food or drink establishment of your choice!
Second place - a $50 gift card to a Taste of Carlsbad Village food or drink establishment - goes to @poor_girl_gone_hiking who really got into the spirit of things at Kathleen Carrillo Galleries, a Sip Stop in the event who hosted Orfila Winery and Vineyards. Kathleen provided a collaborative painting platform for event-goers at her Sip Stop which was a huge hit with the crowd.
Third place - a $50 gift card to a Taste of Carlsbad Village food or drink establishment - goes to @kirstybsmith who featured the delicious-looking Chronic Amber Ale from the Village's very own Pizza Port Brewing Company in our first-ever reusable Taste of Carlsbad Village cup. Good eye Kirsty!
