The first weekend of every August, the town of Binghamton, New York hosts the Spedie Fest. This is a festival named after their famous sandwich, the spedie. I already posted about this sandwich and the marinade. Click here to go to that post.
The main feature, is the hot air balloon launches which, weather permitting, take place every morning and evening of the festival. Seeing the whole sky filled with colorful balloon is an awesome site. You can purchase a ride. Perhaps someday I will.
There is food, crafts and music. The Marshall Tucker Band performed on Friday.
In the evening there was fireworks.
