BINGHAMTON, NY – The 60th annual Columbus Day Parade and Tournament of Marching Bands basked in the warm sunlight in downtown Binghamton this morning.
Once again, it was a mixture of Italian-American pride and a showcase for high school musicians from across the region.
Representatives from the Sons of Italy, Saint Mary of the Assumption Church, Knights of Columbus and other Italian-American groups strode down Court Street.
Or rode in open convertibles.
And there were plenty of politicians on hand.
6 local schools competed in the Tournament of Marching Bands.
The parade was sponsored by Garufi Law.
