The 2013 Spiediefest and Balloon Rally is finally here.  Otsiningo Park opens to visitors Friday at 3 PM.  Shuttle busses are scheduled to begin transporting visitors to the Park from Broome Community College at 2 PM.

At 6 PM Broome County Executive Debbie Preston will officially open the festivities in a ceremony paying tribute to our area veterans.  Following that ceremony if weather permits the first Balloon Launch will occur.

At 7:30 Classic Rock group Night Ranger will perform.  They have sold over 10 million records all over the world.  Their two biggest hits are “Sister Christian” and “When You Close Your Eyes”. A Spiediefest Button is needed for this concert and other concerts scheduled for the weekend.

Over 100,000 visitors are expected over the three-day celebration.  Motorists should note that the on-ramp to Interstate 81 Northbound at Interchange 5 will be closed beginning at Noon Friday to accommodate bus traffic.  The interchange will reopen at 11 AM on Monday, August 5th.
