The 24th Annual Spiedie Fest & Balloon Rally is this weekend in Binghamton, New York. Where else are you gonna see a K9 frisbee dog show, an antique car and truck show, fireworks, a volleyball championship, Blue Oyster Cult, Bad Company with Brian Howe, a hot air balloon rally, Dale Earnhardt Junior's #88 show car, and get spiedies?

For those unfamiliar with the New York state original "spiedie," it involves meat cubes marinated overnight or longer in a special spiedie sauce (usually olive oil, vinegar, Italian spices, and fresh mint). Grilled on spits over a charcoal pit, the spiedie meat can be eaten straight from the skewer or in sandwich form when stuffed into rolls.
