LEWISTON – In 2015 unusually rainy weather plagued the Lewiston Peach Festival on two of the three days of the event, limiting access to attractions and rides.
But those who had purchased advance ride tickets were told to hold onto those tickets and they will be honored at this year’s event, on Sept. 9, 10 and 11 in Academy Park.
Organizers and Niagara County Peach Festival Chairman Alan Hastings are hoping for a much better forecast and have reminded festivalgoers of their promise last year.
Advance ride tickets for 2016 are on sale at 40 locations throughout the Lewiston area at a 50 percent discount. The midway offered by Amusements of America will operate 44 attractions, making it the largest midway in Niagara County.
Ticket information and a schedule of events for the three-day festival are available at www.lewistonpeachfestival.org.
The parade will be held at 11 a.m. on Sept. 10 and any units wishing to march in the parade should contact Parade Chairman Jerry Wolfgang for an entry form at 754-7745. Entry forms will be accepted through Aug. 29. Trophies and cash prizes will be awarded.
