51st Annual July Fest / Music & Jazz Festival A Success

Congratulations to the Downtown Binghamton Business Association for what appears to have been a very successful July Fest.  In the many years that I have attended, I must admit that this is the first time that I actually found it difficult to work my way through the crowd of people.  That is a wonderful feeling to have.  

Not only is it a positive reflection on the event and its organizers; it is also a clear confirmation that the City of Binghamton's revitalization is on the right track.

Many will argue that our road to recovery is being borne solely on the backs of the university students.  I beg to differ to some extent.  This event was held at a time of the year when the students are not in residence.  The attendees were your average Binghamton area families.  Even though the presence of the students will have an impact on our revitalization, we must never forget those that are here for the long haul.  It is the combination of the two groups; working together, that makes BInghamton great!
