Oswego Things to Do: 2 reviews and 4 photos

Harborfest, last weekend of july every year. A couple hundred 1000 people come to the city over 4 days. 100's of free music acts/groups. There are numerous stages set up throughout the city and in parks. all divided up by muscially types. Starts on Friday with an oldies concert at the main stage, KC and the Sunshine Band last year. The fest features many upstate bands and talent as well as national acts. There are also many up and coming acts bands. Many of the past country acts are now famous. All the bands are very good and talented. They have music to suite eveyones taste. Sometimes there are a few good acts you want to see playing at the same time. They feature Rock, blues, Jazz, Funk, big band, country, latin, zydeco (carib®g)etc.. My favoirte from last year was Milo Z. A combination of blues, funk and dance, good stuff. Too many to name. Giant (Great) Lake as well with great fishing or other water sports. Nice long walkway along the river you can walk or run on or just watch all the fisherman. Supermodified open wheel racing at Oswego Speedway on Sat. night through summer mons. Medieval Fare outside City limits during late summer, numerous golf courses
lots of food and things to do, Grucci fireworks Sat night, spectacular. It's also fun to people watch, sometimes you can catch a freak show during Harborfest.
