Altamont Fair

Sydney Salerno, a Voorheesville student, will be competing in the Miss New York Teen USA pageant this coming weekend, from Jan. 13 to Jan. 15. The teenager has kept a busy schedule in preparation for the pageant, and she’s excited to see what’s in store this weekend.

Kids and their parents at the fair will have a chance to test their fearlessness by holding an eight-foot boa constrictor or petting an 18-pound lizard. It’s all done to show them that they don’t need to fear reptiles, says Adam Bornt of Uncharted Wild.
