Whole Lot of Muckin’ Going On
Murphys, CA — Grapes and the dream of victory for 99 teams were crushed at the 13th annual Grape Stomp in Murphys Saturday.
100 teams competed but it was the Cluster Busters who stomped out a win during the championship stomp.
Making up the team are Ron Lawrence and Alan Hofman of Murphys. This was the fifth win for the duo. They took home first in the inaugural year of the stomp.
Teams from around the state and beyond competed for prizes and bragging rights.
In all, 5,200 pounds of grapes were crushed and even more fun was had.
The event coincided with the Gold Rush Street Faire, which lined the streets of Murphys with food and craft booths.
