One of the largest St. Patrick's Day Parades in Upstate New York returns to Binghamton streets.
The 43rd annual parade is Saturday, March 6th.
This is video of last years celebration.
Thousands of spectators will line Main Street.
As floats, marching bands, and local police and fire departments make their way down.
At 1:15 pm the Shamrock Fun Run will take place around the parade route.
Which will be followed by a CHOW truck to collect food and cash donations.
"We do not want to forget our heritage and certainly taking care of the CHOW pantries and the other charitable things that AOH does is symbolic of the fact that we have not forgotten," said Parade Grand Marshall Father Laurence Lord.
The City says it will have the same amount of security on staff as last year.
The parade starts at 1:30 pm.
It begins at the Court/Fayette Street intersection and marches to the Main/Arthur Street Intersection.
There is also a post parade party from 2 to 6 pm at the Seton Catholic High School.
The Action News Team will be marching in the Parade and WBNG's own Erik Burling will be emceeing.
