Congratulations and kudos to everyone involved in this past weekend’s Prattsburgh Summer Festival. I had the chance to go up and walk around the town park Saturday and take in some of the atmosphere the festival had to offer to my hometown. It was great to see so many familiar faces, and some new ones too, all enjoying what the small Steuben County township and its neighbors have to offer.
Of course, I have to talk about the great chicken wings, salt potatoes and pulled pork sandwiches we had from Avoca Smoka, and the delicious brick oven pizza from Anita Pizza! Both offerings really hit the spot and it was the perfect way to celebrate “National Chicken Wing Day.”
The clam bake was extremely busy and the streets were filled with those playing in the Cornhole Competition and the music Saturday night was great.
Unfortunately, I couldn’t make it to the parade Sunday, but having announced it in years past, I am sure it was nothing short of fantastic.
It’s never easy to put on a festival like this, but much praise to everyone that was involved in putting it together and all the volunteers too. I wouldn’t be surprised if planning the 2018 Festival is already underway.
It’s always good to “go home again” and once again Prattsburgh and its residents showed its a “small town with BIG spirit!”
Don’t be afraid to leave me a comment below……be good!
