The 61st annual Niagara County Peach Festival kicked off in fine fashion on Thursday, with family and friends flocking to Academy Park in the Village of Lewiston. They wanted to get their first taste of peach shortcake and Johnnie Ryan peach pop, play games for prizes, eat at the dozen-plus food stands and, of course, ride the rides.
The Peach Festival continues through Sunday. It culminates with the crowning of a new Peach Queen on Sunday evening at the bandshell. For a complete schedule, parking information, food news and photos, click the links below. (Photos by Terry Duffy and Joshua Maloni)

LPD has surprise entry for Peach Festival Parade
Visitors to this weekend's annual Niagara County Peach Festival Parade on Center Street will be able to check out a surprise entry by the Lewiston Police Department: a completely restored 1950 Ford police car.
"We have a 1950 Ford that one of the guys redid," Lewiston Police Chief Frank Previte said. "It's a 1950 with Lewiston Police markings on it; it's an authentic 1950s police vehicle."
Previte said Brian Grear, a Niagara County Sheriff's deputy, owns the vehicle. "He totally restored it; repainted it; it's from Texas," Previte said.
The Peach Festival Parade is expected to feature more than 100 entries, including police and fire companies, dance groups, plus community and youth organizations. It starts at 11 a.m. this morning at the corner of Center and Fourth streets and continues down Center Street to Academy Park. (LPD photo)
