The New York State Fair opens today in Syracuse. The 12-day run continues to September 7th.
Yesterday, fair officials unveiled the butter sculpture. This year the 800-pound block of butter is a nod to the dairy industry.
The midway features new rides this year and the Chevy Court is packed with free concerts. 90’s rockers Everclear performs today at 2pm, 1980’s one hit wonder Rick Springfield plays at 8pm. And Country artist Eric Church plays the Grandstand tonight at 7:30pm.
This will be the final year for the grandstand concerts at the fair. Onondaga County has built a new outdoor amphitheater, which will open on September 3rd.
Governor Cuomo has designated Friday as new Americans Day and Pride Day.
