Blueberry Festival in Ellenville this Saturday

Saturday, Aug. 11: Blueberry season is still raging full-force along the Shawangunk Ridge – especially the easy-to-pick highbush species, with their paler-blue, large, juicy, small-seeded fruits. Sunnier spots where the berries ripen early are probably already picked-over, whether by birds, humans or other mammals; but now would be a good time to check your favorite shadier troves.
