Spiedies Festival and Balloon Rally to Begin Selling Beer and Wine

Organizers of the Spiedie Fest and Balloon Rally say that starting this year beer and wine will now be sold at their event.

On Tuesday a committee of the Broome County Legislature approved the organizer's request to allow beer and wine to be sold at the 3 day festival.
Organizer David Pessagno says the adult beverages will be sold in a beer garden that will have security staff on both sides of the tent.

"It's exciting for us. We hope it brings up our sponsorship level and hope it helps with some revenue," said David Pessagno Spiedie Fest Organizer.

This year's spiedie festival will take place on July 31st through August 2nd. Last year about 75 thousand people attended the event.
