Your Town Oswego and Harborfest: Matt's Memo
What an evening it was in Oswego. Our NBC 3 Your Town broadcast originated from Breitbeck Park overlooking the Oswego Harbor and Lake Ontario. The view is wonderful. The northerly breeze off the lake fresh. It cooled us just enough to make up for the bright sun shining down.
Megan Coleman and I were joined by Meteorologist Molly Matott and Sports Director Niko Tamurian. Reporter Alex Resila also showed us around some of the best Oswego has to offer including a helicopter view of the shoreline.
This is a great weekend to visit Oswego because of Harborfest. Tomorrow night the Grucci Brothers fireworks are set off just past the Oswego Harbor. It is the best fireworks show of the summer in the Central New York region.
We had a particularly good broadcast tonight thanks to the on scene production crew of Andy Wolf and Brian Anelli, plus the terrific crew in the control room back in Syracuse.
The highlight of our Your Town broadcast was the food sampling. Colette Astoria gives Oswego Food Tours. She takes groups for a three hour walking tour of historic downtown Oswego stopping at restaurants, pubs and dessert shoppes for what amounts to a delicious meal. She brought a tasty sampling with her to our Breitbeck Park location. It was so irresistible Molly nearly did a forecast with a mouth full of food.
No prettier place to be tonight than Oswego.
Next week our Your Town broadcast takes us to Cicero.
