The festival features food, music, vendors, fun for the kids, and of course the grease pole competition. The Festival says is will follow the lead of Governor Cuomo of the State of New York, the CDC and Mayor Byron Brown for direction on when the Festival can be safely held again. In the press release, the Festival said it would hold a one-day festival, rather than its traditional three-day festival, if we can gather in large groups again.
