Having grown up in the city of Mechanicville and now living there with my family, Family Day in Talmadge Park was always a big deal. Although the past two years the day-long event had to be canceled because of COVID-19, it's making a strong return this year.
The Great New York State Fair begins today (August 20th) in Syracuse and there are a few things you should know before you go. It is eighteen days filled with food, fun, entertainment, rides, animals, live music, and attractions. Last year the fair was canceled due to COVID but this year they are planning on opening the fair at one hundred percent capacity.
