There were endless toasts, and much clinking of glasses of beer and wine on April 8 during the Brick City Beer and Wine Festival.

The event, held at Citizens’ Circle in downtown Ocala, drew a large crowd of thirsty and hungry patrons to check out the libations, food trucks and entertainment.

In the Wind FM “Battle of the Bands,” the winners, first through third place respectively, were the R.E.L Band, The Horde of Culture and Bag O’ Bones, which donated its third-place winnings back to the beneficiaries.

The Ocala Silver Springs and Ocala Sunset Rotary Clubs sponsor the event, with proceeds going to benefit Interfaith Emergency Services, the Marion County Literacy Council and Kimberly’s Center for Child Protection.
