An event that highlights 'gathering together as a community', with music and culture will fill Hanover Square in Downtown Syracuse July 28th and 28th.  The Stage of Nations Ecofest organizers hope the event is entertaining and healing.

Arts and Crafts Show vendors had to batten down their hatches a few times over the weekend, but that didn't keep patrons away entirely.  WAER's Hannah Warren caught some of the shoppers in the act, supporting local and visiting artists who had to make the grade for the juried show. 

The big weekend for downtown included the Jazz and Wine Festival, along with the Ecofest and Stage of Nations, giving visitors many options for entertainment in Columbus Circle, Hanover Square and Clinton Square.
