Ithaca Festival #SkywatchFriday

Ithaca, New York is a college town in the Finger Lakes region of New York.

On the first weekend in June, Ithaca holds a festival called the Ithaca Festival, held in various areas, including the downtown Commons.

We went up there on a beautiful day (unlike all the days we've had rain, or heat).
Home Dairy Alley.

A decorative hanging.

The downtown Commons, where many gathered to see music performances, shop for crafts, and eat.

Finally, the Cayuga Creamery, north of Ithaca on Cayuga Lake, one of (in my humble opinion) the best ice cream parlors in upstate New York.

Join other bloggers in visiting Skywatch Friday, where bloggers from all over the world show the sky.

    1. OK, OK. Cornell and Ithaca College. There was a Cornell store not far from the first picture but I couldn't resist a picture of the alley instead.

  2. Love the Creamery! Love Ithaca, too, even though Cornell did not accept my son! Their loss!

    1. Ithaca has to be an ice cream capitol of sorts - Purity, the Cornell Dairy (although I don't like the modern location as much as the old one) and, although it isn't in Ithaca, the Cayuga Creamery.

    1. It's wonderful ice cream, too. Maybe it's a good thing it isn't around the corner from me.
