CRESTVIEW — A night of music, dancing, gourmet cuisine and cultural displays is on tap next Saturday for the Crestview Area Chamber of Commerce's annual Wine Gala.

With the theme "Moonlight and Melodies Cultural Celebration," the chamber's Arts and Culture Committee will help organizers enhance the festivity.

As part of the state's Viva Florida 500 celebrations, special performances will include a Native American flute player and demonstrations of African and Latin American dances, event chairwoman Crystal Boyles said.

Bob Sikes Airport's fixed-base operator, Emerald Coast Aviation, is the evening's host and, along with L3 Crestview Aerospace, is a premier sponsor.

"Hopefully, we'll have nice weather and can have the hangar doors open and have the runway lights on and really set the tone for the evening," Boyles said, adding there will be a silent auction and a wine raffle.

Jones and Company, led by Dr. Cheryl Jones, and special guest vocalist Sandra Daggs will provide entertainment.

Country Chicken and Fish, Helen Back Again, Johnny O'Quigley's Ale House, Chill Yogurt, Sorabal Korean BBQ, Boudreaux's and other establishments will provide food.
