ELLENVILLE – The weather couldn’t have been any better on Saturday for the annual Ellenville Blueberry Festival.

Thousands turned out for the annual event that “puts Ellenville on the map,” said Mayor Jeff Kaplan.

“You can’t leave a fair without blueberries,” said Joanna Weingard of Wurtsboro, one of the festival goers.

There was everything from blueberry pies to jams and cotton candy. That wasn’t all. There were other fruit pies and even pickles for sale, but we are not sure if they were blueberry flavored!
