The Taste of Lockport, Niagara County's largest food festival of the summer, will mark its 18th year when it starts serving samples on Sunday.
The tasting event is moving to the center of Historic Lockport this year, taking over Main Street with more than 60 vendors from some of Lockport's finest restaurants. Beer and wine also will be served.
Music and dance performances will keep diners entertained, and there will be activities specifically for children. Patrons will be asked to cast their votes in a variety of food categories, such as best pizza, festival favorite, best new restaurant, best dessert and best display. And, a first this year, votes can be cast by texting 474747.
