Colorscape ends on a high note

NORWICH – With scattered showers periodically dampening the opening to the 14th annual Colorscape Chenango, the second day of the festival was a beautiful summer’s day, drawing crowds of around 14,000 to the City of Norwich.



Performer Pete Kennedy told a crowd of several hundred gathered Sunday before the courthouse stage, “Now this is beautiful Chenango. This is the weather we’re supposed to and usually have.”

“The weather turned out great. Even though we had rain Saturday, a lot of people still came,” said Colorscape Executive Director Lisa Iannello.

The festival continues to grow in size with more than 80 artists attending this year’s event. “A lot of festivals in other places in the state are struggling with attendance or were canceled because of the economic concerns facing most people these days,” said Peggy Finnegan, president of the Colorscape Board.
