Chittenango, the birthplace of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz author L. Frank Baum, holds the three-day festival each year.

Sherman’s outfit was part of a costume contest where local businesses compete against each other.

After leaving the festival, Sherman allegedly drove to an unidentified man’s home while drunk and was asked to leave.
