Balloon versus Chicken: A Spiedie Fest Story
- Jareen, CNN iReport producer
Likewise, Binghamton's Spiedie Fest and Balloon Rally now in its 30th year, is celebrated for three days at the beginning of August where tourists and locals come for the Spiedies but stay for the balloons, launched every morning and night.
I traveled to Binghamton, ate a Spiedie, rode a hot air balloon and learned more about the festival from pilots and chefs.
