It Just Doesn’t Get Any Bigger Than HarborFest in Oswego!

Tens of thousands will descend on Oswego for HarborFest July 25-28, 2013, billed as the state’s largest admission free event  The venue, in the city’s harbor area with Lake Ontario as a backdrop features a vast array of food and fun as well as some super fireworks and a couple of name rock bands.

More than 100,000 guests are expected for the big Saturday night fireworks display (put on by the famous Grucci fireworks family) over the lake.  Friday music is by legendary rockers Foghat and Blue Oyster Cult.  The American Bus Association named HarborFest as one of their “Top 100 U.S. destinations” for five separate years.
