Hundreds of people came out for the first day of the Bernalillo Wine Festival on Saturday.

KOB Eyewitness News 4 told you on Friday that anyone who plans to be a sober driver can sign up at the designated driver booth.

They will receive a wine festival t-shirt and tickets for free non-alcoholic drinks.

The festival has something for everyone.

“There's 24 wineries from all over the state of New Mexico, wines of all variety and for every palate,” said attendee Maria Rinaldi. “There's continuous stage entertainment, there's an arts and crafts show, there's agricultural product showcases here and a great kids zone with magicians and a kid's train and a petting zoo.”

People needing rides home can also go to the booth to be linked up with a designated driver.

The wine festival runs through Monday in Bernalillo.
