The 2010 Third Annual Grape Stomp is an exciting opportunity for the entire Kirkland community to come together and cheer on the rarest of athletes - our own local Grape Stompers as they compete, some in full costume, for the prestigious Stomp Cup trophy. This fun-filled family event pits local teams of three against each other and the clock in an effort to stomp grapes in this most unique and fun-filled spectator sport. Barrels of grapes and the blur of stomping feet under outrageous outfits all come together to make the Grape Stomp Kirkland's most colorful event of the season!

The countless hours of training these teams have endured all come down to this moment. Imagine the thrill of witnessing history in the making. The chance to say "I was there when the prestigious Stomp Cup was won." The chance to be crowned champion of the Third Annual Grape Stomp. This truly is the pinnacle of achievement in the sports world.
