“It’s a way to ease the frustration of this pandemic,” said Christoper Linney, of Syracuse, who was among the first in line with Tanika McCrary and his son, Isaac. “A little fried dough, some lemonade, a cheese stick and some cotton candy.

“Things are just better with cotton candy,” he added, turning to his son. ”Right Isaac?"
