Wine, games and music at Fink Fest
FINK, Texas (KTEN) -- If you blink, you might miss Fink, population zero.
But once a year, this tiny town on State Highway 289 just south of Pottsboro becomes the home of the Fink Fest.
The fun starts Friday evening with a wine tasting event with an expert guide.
"He is a French man, so he knows his wine," said Paul Anselmo, who owns the town. "Grew up in France in the wine country of Bordeaux, and he's got the ponytail and the accent to prove it."
Cornhole and Connect Four are just a few ways Anselmo is honoring an old tradition.
"We are trying to really bring back the old Fink Fest or 'Fink Days,' as they called it back then... they had games," he said.
One of the biggest events of the weekend is the songwriter contest.
"We have some contestants; we had a fair amount of them that wrote songs about Fink, and we just decided we needed a theme song. So this year is the Year of the Song," Anselmo said.
Now in its fifth year, the Fink Fest continues to grow.
"I bought the town in 2018, and the first Fink Fest was just to honor the fact that it happened," Anselmo said. "I think we had free beer in the parking lot that day. And every year, it's gotten bigger and better and more attended."
