The town named after the German city held its 12th annual festival featuring food, music, eating competitions and children’s activities. Some in attendance donned attire paying tribute to their favorite meat. There were more than 30 stands serving a variety of burgers.
Last year, the festival drew more than 35,000 people. The attendance for Saturday’s festival wasn’t immediately available.
Hamburg is a town of about 4,000 people in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains.

PROFESSOR: MISSING TARANTULA NOT DANGEROUS, BUT IT CAN BITE
LOWELL, Mass. (AP) — A biology professor at University of Massachusetts at Lowell said a missing tarantula isn’t dangerous, but he’s giving fair warning: It can bite.
Rick Hochberg, a professor of biological sciences, posted a sign asking to be contacted if the black-and-orange creature is spotted. A poster offering a reward for the live capture of the tarantula said it was last seen in a wall vent.
Hochberg said the fugitive is unlikely to approach people and is not dangerous. However, the poster said it can bite and should not be handled by the inexperienced.
