The Italian-American Festival In Utica Is Growing

My father who lives in Florida, is visiting us this week. We have Italian heritage in our family so I just had to take him to the festival yesterday. If you missed it, you missed out on some great food.

The 34th Utica Boilermaker Is In The Books

And again, Ridouane Harroufi from Morocco is a 2nd time winner of the Utica Boilermaker 15K road race. He also won in 2009.

15K is about 9.3 miles of running but as I noted live on Lite 98.7 just before the cannon blast, the path to the starting area adds just enough distance to total 9.87 miles. (okay I just made that up).

Utica Safe Schools ‘Build A Bike’ Campaign

You can still drop off you new or used bikes for distribution next week at 'The Shopps At The Finish Line'. They're located at 809 Court St. at the corner of Varick across from the brewery. As you can see, I dropped off Marks 'Mongoose' bike that he out grew and, it is actually missing a peddle. Not to worry, a staff of dedicated volunteers are working all day long to repair bikes for the needy kids in our community.

We're giving you a different view of the parade route.  Instead of you watching the parade pass by you, we'll give you a glimpse of what we see while driving the van in the parade.

Despite the cloudy and cold conditions (isn't that every St Pat Parade?) the Irish pride was once again strong in Utica this year!
