Port Chester Middle School Band instructor Linda McDermott and seventh-grader Stephanie Lazala lead the marching band in a loop around Lyon Park to make a grand entrance at PC150FEST on Sunday, May 27.
Excited to represent John F. Kennedy Elementary School, members of the cheerleading squad join the parade to celebrate 150 years since the incorporation of the Village of Port Chester.
To kick off the festival with local talent, Adams Avenue resident Rosie Veltri, 23, passionately sings “At Last.”
Craving a Sunday afternoon sweet treat, Edison Elementary School fifth-grader Vanessa Lunarejo enjoys her stick of pink fluffy cotton candy.
It’s not a festival in the park without a barbeque! Esmerito Henriquez from Hubbard’s Cupboard Bistro on North Pearl Street cooks various meats on the grill behind the vendors.
Attempting to stay dry, Blind Brook fourth-grade twins Jacob (left) and Ben Goldowsky huddle under their monkey umbrellas with their grandma Jackie, a Port Chester resident.
Sylvan Road resident Isabella Roca, 20, sets up her Port Chester-themed, hand-painted glasses to sell during the festival.
