In Full Swing

Above, Kaler Carpenter emerges from the ever popular dunk tank thanks to Oneonta’s Melissa Schulte and Sarah Wilson. At left, Claire Smith, Oneonta, takes a spin on the mechanical bull. Visitors can also browse a wider variety of vendors, enjoy live music, magic and more. The balloons are set to glow at 8pm, with fireworks at 9:15 p.m.  (Ian Austin/AllOTSEGO.com
