logo-syracuse-new-york.gifKick-start the season of Syracuse summer shindigs with Taste of Syracuse, June 5 and 6 in Clinton Square! With live performances from popular bands of the area and over 80 local restaurants feeding you tasty treats and specialties for only a buck, you'd be remiss to, you know, miss it. And while you're partying from square to square, why not duck into a unique downtown restaurant for everything from Asian to Italian and everything in between.  "Splash others as you would wish to be splashed yourself." That's how the saying goes, right? Try a leisurely weekend of canoeing and kayaking at Beaver Lake or experience the thrills of the Syracuse Hydrofest, June 20-21, at Willow Bay at Onondaga Lake Park! Set your sights high, 500 feet high, that is, and head to the 30th Annual Jamesville Balloon Fest, June 12 through the 14, where gigantic hot-air balloons soar over Jamesville Beach Park. Stay grounded and hop on amusement rides, crunch on classic carnival cuisine, and jam out to the tunes of top local acts, like "Under the Gun" and "Whiskey Mae." Why not try your luck at winning a four-pack of tickets to the Balloon Fest? Get your groove on and head up to Onondaga Community College for the Syracuse Jazz Fest June 26 and 27, featuring 8 internationally touring and recording acts including smooth jazz superstar, the "one and only", saxophonist Kenny G and Dinosaur Bar-B-Que's Southern-style deliciousness!
