What better way to celebrate the 4th than with a concert?
The Binghamton Philharmonic offered a free show for local families called ‘pops in the park concert’ at Highland Park in Endwell.
The philharmonic kicked off at 7:30 Friday evening and featured a variety of patriotic songs including Stars and Stripes Forever, The Armed Forces Salute and 1812 overture. Venders also attended serving sweets that ranged from popcorn, cotton candy and even ice cream.
"Just brings out the community spirit, everyone gets out to see people they haven't seen in a long time. It's very enjoyable, It's a nice big family gathering," said local resident.
Festivities continue at noon Saturday at Highland Park a fireworks display will kick off at 9:30 p.m.
