Fun Fact about Syracuse & Onondaga County …. did you know …..

… that the Great New York State Fair started in Syracuse. New York’s very first fair (September 29-30, 1841) was located in a square bounded today by North Salina, Division, Townsend & Ash Streets with the old Onondaga County Court House serving as an exhibit hall. It was deemed a tremendous success & attracted between 10,000 & 15,000 spectators many traveling by railroad. The NYS Legislature budgeted $8,000 for the “promotion of agriculture & household manufactures in the state” through the annual fair.

Fun Fact about Syracuse/Onondaga County …. did you know …..

… that one of the most popular social dances is the smoke dance, a traditional Haudenosaunee dance. The smoke dance is a derivation of the war dance and was originally only danced by men. It was a fast dance that was designed to exhibit the men’s skill and stamina. In later years, the women devised their own unique style of the dance. Several stories have been evolved around the naming of the smoke dance. In one story, the dancers’ fast spinning in small circles is believed to emulate the curling of smoke.
