Millbrook Vineyards & Winery will be holding their 26th Annual Harvest Party on Saturday, October 22nd from 12:00 to 4:30 PM. This year Millbrook is excited to announce the return of Chef Peter X. Kelly (Restaurant X and X2O-Xaviar’s on the Hudson) as the Harvest Party’s guest chef. Chef Kelly first showcased his culinary talent with us in 1999 and came back for a welcome encore in 2008. Once again, Chef Kelly has prepared an amazing four-course harvest inspired meal that will be expertly paired with Millbrook’s estate bottled wines. The afternoon starts with a wine and hors d’oeuvre hour during registration. The party then moves under a large tented venue on Millbrook’s front lawn.
The fun doesn’t stop there! Fireball Run selected Dutchess County as a featured destination in the series’ 10th Anniversary Season. Fireball Run tells the story of 40 teams, as they compete in a legendary 2,000-mile, life-sized trivia game. To win, contestants take the road less traveled in an epic quest for America’s under-discovered places and historic artifacts, while aiding in a massive awareness campaign, The Race to Recover America’s Missing Children. Streamed online in the USA, and televised internationally, Fireball Run is a 26-episode adventure travel series, which educates and entertains viewers while inspiring travel.
Eight destinations are selected for series inclusion, based on economic vitality, quality of life, uniqueness, story content, and audience interest. Not a reality TV series, Fireball Run is factual entertainment, depicting real events and people. The 10th season, Fireball Run: Anniversary Edition, features several celebrity contestants. Cameras follow the real-life journey of 40 rally teams searching for amazing places and artifacts. Contestants are driven to compete to win for bragging rights, a greater cause, and a plastic road sign! Fireball Run is a streaming series in the USA; televised abroad.
A trivia game at the core, Fireball Run’s mission is nothing trivial: to find missing children. Partnering with Child Rescue Network, each team is assigned a missing child, and tasked with distributing posters along the 8-day route. Since 2007, Fireball Run has aided in the recovery of 47 missing children.
The live competition is from September 23 to October 1. Spectators are welcomed to meet the celebrity teams and take pictures with exotic vehicles, when they stay overnight in Beacon on September 28th. Red carpet events are streamed live on www.FireballRun.com.
