SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

The annual Savannah Food and Wine Festival wrapped up at Ellis Square on Saturday.

There were hundreds of wine exhibitors, spirits, food booths, shopping and more. Lots of people showed up to enjoy all the tasty wine and food, check out cooking demonstrations and cook book author tents.

Each year the festival attracts visitors from all around, including one couple from Jacksonville celebrating their 24th wedding anniversary.

 

"I think the best thing that I really want to remember is just being with my husband and just celebrating the special time that we've been together." said Marta Jackson.

The atmosphere is one thing that brings people back to Savannah year after year.

"The people are wonderful, the food is great, the wine is awesome, the weather is beautiful. It's the place to come, it's going to be an annual event for us." said Vera Williams.

The festival wrapped up this afternoon, and afterwards there was an official after party held in City Market.
