Syracuse (WSYR-TV) - Thousands of music fans from around Central New York wrapped up the last day of Jazz Fest. Visitors got to see a mix of up-and-coming stars, world class performers, local musicians and perhaps the biggest draw of all - jazz legend, B.B. King.

King took the stage around 10 p.m. Saturday night. His set was followed by a fireworks show.

There were several new additions this year at Jazz Fest, which many fans say made it the best year yet.

"The weather is great, the music is wonderful, the people, it's a thing we do every year we look forward to it," said music fan Kathy Kinane.

But, it wasn't just about the music, there were unique dining options. The Macarollin' food truck served classic mac and cheese, along with lobster mac and lamb mac. Owners say they broke their record for the most mac and cheese platters ever served at more than 700.

"I think the food truck industry has raised the bar. It's quality restaurant grade or better at a much faster service," said Chuck Andrews of Macarollin' food truck.

Whether it was the music or the food, organizers say this year's Jazz Fest was one for the record books.
