Brian and Beth Kemp along with Beth's brother Mike Barnard were on Ellicott Street this morning do a little volunteer clean-up work. Other BID members had helped earlier with clean up on Main Street. Beth said the effort is part of getting downtown ready for Saturday's Wine Walk.

There were 500 tickets sold for the 2011 Wine Walk in Downtown Batavia, and despite some strong winds, a bit of a chill and a little rain, attendance for the second annual event was still high.

And everybody had a good time.

This year, 20 downtown merchants participated -- up from 13 last year.

UPDATE: Carlson's Studio had their photo booth set up for wine walk guests, and Kevin Carlson was also shooting group photos on the studio couch. Below are two of the shots from the evening.
