Daily Shoot-Local Landmark

Daily Shoot-Local Landmark, originally uploaded by NedraI.

Daily Shoot:Every town, village, or city has distinguishing icons and landmarks. Make a photo of one wherever you are today.

I decided on this photo for today since it shows two things Utica is known for. First it's the brewery home of Utica Club and now the Saranac beers. Besides brewing great beer they have a party featuring a local band every Thursday throughout the summer. Money made from Saranac Thursdays goes to United Way, at least some of it does-I don't know the details. They also offer tours so if you ever drive by the area be sure to stop by for a tour and a tasting at the end.
The Boilermaker is a 9.3 mile race held on the second Sunday in July. People come from all over the country and world to race in it. It's a great race because not only do elite runners participate but thousands of locals do as well. The race ends here at the brewery and then there's a huge party with bands, food and free beer held in the back parking lots.
