It may not be Saint Patrick's Day according to the calendar, but don't tell that to people in Binghamton today. The city is holding its annual Saint Patrick's Day Parade today. Our Elyse Mickalonis is downtown for all the excitement.
BINGHAMTON, N.Y. -- The only thing better than the weather in Binghamton is the turnout for the city's 45th annual Saint Patrick's Day parade. It kicked off Saturday at 130 p.m.
Thousands of people are lined up from court to main street to watch pipebands, dancing and more. The crowd here is getting into the Saint Patrick’s Day spirit. From four legged friends to kids, everyone is thinking green.
Alex Creheh, Binghamton resident said, “It was actually Halloween hair dye, not Saint Patrick's Day, we were actually gonna save it for crazy hair day at school, but thought it would be a good idea to use it now instead."
Colin Gowe, Vestal resident said, “It's just fun I come every year I've been here for eight years out of the 10 years of my life, it good to have candy."
And if course we've even got some of our own friends from YNN in the parade. So keep an eye out for the YNN Storm Chaser.
