117th Tontitown Grape Festival


Alexis Peterson, 13, (center) of Fayetteville gasps Tuesday, Aug. 4, 2015, while riding the Marvel Avengers ride during the 117th annual Tontitown Grape Festival. The festival continues through Saturday.

Though it can be exhausting to walk around and search for photographs for hours, I look forward to the Grape Festival each summer. This job is made for people watchers and I am a big people watcher.

About Andy Shupe

Andy Shupe was born at Pensacola Naval Air Station in Pensacola, Fla., before moving to Berea, Ky., where he grew up. After graduating from Berea College with a degree in biology in 1993, Andy moved to Fayetteville and began working for the Northwest Arkansas Times as a clever ploy to enable him to see his beloved Kentucky Wildcats play basketball. In addition to photography, Andy enjoys baseball, working on old cars and marveling at how old that makes him sound.
