CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

BB&T Charleston Wine + Food Festival isn't happening until March (the 4-8 to be exact), but the fun has already started.

To celebrate this tasty tradition, now in its tenth year, a kickoff event happened Wednesday at the Power House in North Charleston.

Here are 5 Around Town's five favorite moments from the party at the Power House.

1 - Local band Charleston Groove Factory kept partygoers movin' and groovin'. While this group is a cover band, we learned that this year's fest will actually feature a variety of original artists. This is the first time organizers will incorporate musical artists into the itinerary.

2 - Partygoers at the Power House party were some of the most fashionable and friendly people. And right as this was noted, the band broke out in Carolina girls. Now that's timing!

3 - The crispy pork confit from Roti Rolls and the Macintosh was a personal fave. I'm no foodie so I have no idea what a confit is. What I do know is that this dish was delish.

4 - While the event was sold out, no line lasted longer than five minutes which meant it was easy to try everything. Let's hope the festival provides the same experience.

5 - Along with food offerings from places like Lunchbox and The Grocery, there were delicious drinks on hand as well. The multiple bars featured a many different options, including beers from Holy City Brewing, the ever popular Moscow Mule and Manhattans made with Bulleit Bourbon 10 Year.

A variety of ticket options for the BB&T Charleston Wine + Food Festival are on sale now.
