When they announced the first Annual Bacon Fest in Downtown Syracuse’s, Clinton Square I was like “Yes!!!!”
When they announced it was only going to run for one day I was like “What????”
Clearly they underestimated CNY’s love for pork.
Hell, the Middle Eastern Fest is four days long.
So I parked my car down at the Inner Harbor with Liam so I didn’t have to pay or fight for parking then strolled up the Creek Walk to the square and let’s say I wasn’t surprised.
Each vendor line was easily 30 people deep. Some we’re just lined up to get lemonade.
So let’s just say they were a little overwhelmed.
But I did get to sample a few delicious items in between Liam’s requests for M&Ms.
Bacon Mac and cheese from MacaRollin
Chicken bacon ranch Gyro from Byblos Street Grill
Nice idea for this event. But it needs more time.
