This is easily one of my favorite weekends of the year in the Southern Tier!  It's Spiedie Fest weekend!  There is definitely something for everyone during the 3 day festival!

Spiedie Fest started out as just a spiedie cooking contest, but over the years has grown into this huge event with hot air balloons, food and vendors!  And, let's not forget the 3 days of live entertainment!  Some of the biggest names in the music industry have stopped here in Binghamton for the Spiedie Festival.

Some of the previous Spiedie Fest musical acts include Mya, Blessed Union of Souls, C & C Music Factory, Cheap Trick, Eddie Money, Uncle Cracker and Sugar Ray to name a few.

Every year I get to feed my addiction of Italy hats by stopping by one of the many vendors to stock up!
