Blueberry Festival bakes under blue sky

The sky was just about the right color for the Blueberry Festival on Saturday in Lake George.

With the sun blazing down on a town crowded with visitors, vendors, and activities, the berries ripening at the First Fruits Blueberry Farms booth seemed to have the right idea.

Blueberry pies, blueberry jams and even a couple of grills serving sizzling blueberry brats went toward the theme of the annual summer event.

There were also a children’s carnival at the town hall, a kids’ pedal pull in the middle of a street, a rummage sale, and tables loaded with everything from craft items to baby gear.
