Get your Sizzle at the Hamburger Festival
Although this was our first year at The Taste of Hamburg-er Festival the festival has been alive for 13 years. The festival lives in Hamburg Pennsylvania. It is a quaint and charming town with a view of the mountains in the background. Hamburg is 200 years old and is populated with brick houses and lots of front porches.
We were in a great location; and, the weather was fabulous. The sky was clear, low humidity, and an occasional gentle breeze. One could not ask for a better day.
Esther, the coffee and I got there around 7 A.M. The coffee set our booth and we ready when the festival opened. Our booth was located on the corner of Third and State Streets under the portico. Richard of Pennsylvania Soy Candles was our neighbor and as always it was great to see him. He has wonderful soy candles, lotions and goat milk soap. You can visit Pennsylvania Soy Candles.
The festival started at 10 AM and so did the crowd.
Everyone was excited and there to have a lot of fun.
There were burgers everywhere. There were Pretzel burgers, Crabby burgers, Jalapeno burgers, Surf and Turf burgers, and the reliable cheese burgers. Of course, there was my favorite, a good old fashion burger with lettuce, tomato, and mayonnaise
There were smoothies (Esther loves smoothies), Fudge, Ice cream, French fried potatoes of all kinds, homemade baked goods and lots more. There were artisans and crafters with such items as jewelry, painted glass bowls and stemware, wreathes, painted gourds, wood crafters and lots of other vendors.
Hamburgers and hamburger lovers were everywhere. There were hamburger contests for professionals and amateurs. Judging was intense. Burger lovers could vote for their favorite
There was mustard and ketchup to put on the hamburgers.
