OSWEGO, NY – Food, one of the many reasons people crowd Breitbeck Park in Oswego each summer for Harborfest.
The usual selections like gyros, wine slushies and fried dough bring people back to the food and newer selections add a fun flare each year.
Featuring the main concert stage, beer tent and a big selection of vendors, Breitbeck was the definitive stop for Harborfest-goers looking to relax, enjoy a meal and great music.
There’s a little bit of something for everyone each year.
Some of the staples at Harborfest include Garafolo’s, The Spud Shack, Nancy’s Fried Dough, Ashley Lynn Winery, Ma and Pa’s Kettle Corn and Ye-Ero.
“I get a gyro and a wine slushy every year!” said annual Harborfest attendee Danielle Fellows.
Newer to the Harborfest scene were trucks for Heid’s Of Liverpool, Ben and Jerry’s and Macarollin’.
Macarollin’ is a food truck that serves gourmet macaroni and cheese in a variety of styles including bacon mac, lobster mac, Philly cheese steak mac, caprese mac and of course classic mac.
“We have two locations, one at Eastview Mall and one at Marketplace Mall in their food courts and we also have two food trucks. This is our second year at Harborfest, we were successful last year and we are doing great this year already as well,” said Caley Andrews, whose father owns Macarollin’.
Aside from Breitbeck, there was carnival food available at Wright’s Landing including corn dogs, chicken on a stick, and sausage. They also provide the usual funnel cakes, but incorporated deep fried Oreos, Twinkies, Reeses, and Snickers.
Children were pleased with the selection of staples, cotton candy, fried dough and ice cream.
With multiple ice cream vendors throughout Harborfest, a cold cone was always available for those hot Harborfest days.
Sugary Delights provided 25 delicious flavors of cotton candy including blue raspberry, grape, and bubble gum and some more unique such as mom’s apple pie, carrot cake and chocolate.
