Downpours and gusty winds at the end of the day put a slight damper on the otherwise perfect sunny day Saturday for the Port Deposit Wine and Food Festival. Held in Marina Park at the south end of town, the festival featured wines from local vineyards and foods provided by Laurrapin Grille. The park, though prone to flooding, was in great shape and the festival-goers enjoyed the day along the river.
