The 14th annual Mountain Harvest Festival took place in Paonia over the weekend. And one of its events is messier than the others.

The Contest

Four-year-old Tazzy Wilensky is about to compete in the Grape Stomp contest at the festival.

She’s dressed like a butterfly and is a bit shy.

She says she's there to "squish grapes" and it's here first time trying it.

Lena Wilensky is Tazzy’s mom. She’s also dressed like a butterfly.
