Dinosaur Bar-B-Que

Syracuse locals, the Spring Street Family Band, rocks central New York venues on its way up.

It's about 10:45 p.m on Friday night at the Dinosaur Bar-B-Que in Rochester, New York, and people are having a hard time hearing over the music. The manager of the restaurant goes to the stage and tells the band to keep it down. For two songs, they do.

After the second song, bassist Dennis Lingel calls for a huddle.

“If we don't play louder, people are going to think we f------ suck,” Lingel said.

The fair ran for 12 days and captured an array of the Empire State's culture from livestock, to Native American Heritage, to fried tasty treats.

The Great New York State Fair is a buzzing, wonderfully chaotic place, where hundreds of thousands of people from all across the Empire State gather to celebrate all that this glorious state has to offer. Whether you’re a city-dweller or making your way in from the country, whether you’ve come to claim a blue ribbon for your prized cattle or come to eat deep-fried Oreos and ride the tilt-a-whirl until you hurl, the fair has something for everyone.
