Scott Wright Jr. will be remembered at this Friday's Teen Fest at Binghamton High School.

The event is also a stop the violence showcase.

Many students have been hard at work for the show, which will include speakers, including murder victim Scott Wright Jr.'s father, and Binghamton City Councilwoman Lea Webb.

There will be singing, dancing, stepping, games for the youth and other activities.

Numerous organizations will also be taking part in a vendor fair, including the Broome County Arts Council, the Urban League and Boys and Girls Club of Binghamton.

Talia Moore of DT Production has been organizing Teen Fest.

"This is important because, one, we need to come together as a community. We need to really show our community that, one we support our kids. Two, that we can come together and can lift them up and show them that there are other ways to be active in the community instead of being in things that will be destructive or violent," said Moore.

A Teen Fest vendor fair is from 4 until 6 p.m. and the show is from 6:30 until 8 p.m., this Friday at Binghamton High School.

For ticket information, call Moore at 221-4069.

The Scott Wright Memorial Fund and Youth in the Arts will benefit from proceeds.
