Residents of the Binghamton area, along with people who once lived in the region, are planning to gather for a community celebration at a West Side park.

The All-Siders Reunion will be held Saturday at Recreation Park.

Dean De Falco says he started the event four years ago when he decided to start a party to "bring us all back together."

De Falco says people from all over the country now return to Binghamton to participate in the event.

Speaking on WNBF Radio's Binghamton Now program, De Falco said the reunion now helps to raise money for the community while those in attendance remember lost loved ones.

De Falco said the event will feature free food and music, along with entertainment for children. Participants are encouraged to bring donations for the Community Hunger Outreach Warehouse program.

The party is scheduled to take place Saturday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
