Thousands Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day In Binghamton

WNBF News/ Roger Neel Photo

The annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade drew thousands of spectators to downtown Binghamton this afternoon.  People of all ages lined Court Street from Fayette to Arthur to watch the dozens of floats, fire trucks, bagpipers, the Avalon String Band and many more participants, take part in the celebration.

The parade took place under overcast but dry skies.  The parade is one of the biggest St. Patrick’s Day parades in New York.  Plenty of Binghamton University students watched.  Many were dressed in green in honor of St. Patrick’s Day.

Binghamton’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade is always held in the early part of March to attract as many fire departments, pipers and other attractions as possible.  Many of those participating in today’s parade will be taking part in larger parades the next two weekends.

Binghamton officials blocked off a portion of State Street between Court and Hawley for a pre and post parade celebration.  Hundreds went from the parade to Seton Catholic Central High School for a celebration after the parade.
