With Harborfest only weeks away, the memories it will leave in peopleÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s minds will live on, especially when festival enthusiasts have a token of Harborfest memorabilia to take home.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â There is no need to wait for Harborfest to get here as pre-festival sales have begun. The 2008 design T-shirt is a horse of a different color, rather a “shirt” of a different color.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â This yearÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s design, compliments of Maria Bullock of Mitchell Printing and Mailing, brings music to life with color changing graphics.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Shoppers will have their choice from two colored graphics offered on an all black tee, the first a white that changes to purple in the sunlight, the second, a shimmer of silver that glistens in the sun.
As if Harborfest didnÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t already bring enough color to Oswego, kids will have their pick of individually tie-dyed shirts, each with its own unique design. The line continues with the trademark Harborfest hoodies and distressed fireworks burst shirts, available in a variety of colors.
To make a pre-festival purchase, shoppers can visit the Harborfest offices at 41 Lake Street, or stop into CÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s Farm Market, Discover Oswego, or JC PenneyÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s.
Purchasing during the festival can be made by visiting any one of the memorabilia booths, “Harbor-Huts” in Breitbeck Park, River Walk East, or East Park.
With the Route 104 Bridge closed for repair this summer, be sure to plan accordingly so that you donÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t miss the events you want to see.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â The Utica Street Bridge will be open as will the pedestrian walking bridge located just north of Utica Street.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Visit the Harborfest website at www.oswegoharborfest.com for the latest information regarding transportation options and performance schedules.
