Cheers! These were cups we recived at the event for free.

It’s hard for me to remember the times when I couldn’t consume these delightful low-calorie bubble-filled creations. However just like the times when you could attend a festival…they did exist.

Just like seltzers, festivals are one of my favorite things. I love being able to try a little something of everything (yes, I also love buffets don’t judge me) so I have been keeping my eye out for things to do since restrictions have loosened. A few weeks ago I saw a promotion for a festival called Seltzerland and how they were turning the golf course here in Charlotte, North Carolina into the ultimate hard seltzer paradise. (Yes, please) I snagged tickets, grabbed our masks, andĀ attended the festival with my significant other this past weekend. (the first festival since COVID-19)

When we arrived we received a swag bag filled with a souvenir sampling cup, water bottle (got to stay hydrated), and koozies. Each station was spaced out and entry was timed so social distancing could take place. People wore masks, were courteous and everyone was respectful. We both enjoyed sampling seltzers, bacon, and getting out of the house in a socially distanced setting.

There were over 50 different types of seltzer to try and even included local brands. During our time at the festival, we successfully got a pic for the gram, and took home our own swag bags and tasting glasses. I loved it and would recommend it to anyone who loves seltzer or just wants to get out of the house. By the way…this experience also gave me hope for the future and getting back to normal soon.
