There are ample opportunities to sample a wide variety of food during Potsdam's Summer Festival. The Potsdam Elks chicken barbeque is a staple of the 3-day event. At right, Ryan Thompson, Parishvlle, and Nate White, Potsdam, turn the chicken over the hot coals. They grilled 525 chickens and were prepared to sell out as in previous years.
