There are huckleberry pies, shakes, fresh huckleberries sold by the gallon, and several landowners in Delaware County hand-pick and sell the huckleberries to local businesses, usually for around $ 30 a gallon. The carnival also comes to town around this time of year, and it always turns out to be quite a cheery festival.
