Blues On The Bridge Takes Over Downtown Binghamton

Posted:
This year's Blues On The Bridge brought thousands out today for food, dancing, and of course...lots of blues music.

Sounds of a harmonica flowed over the river while a couple danced in the crowd.

The Blues on the Bridge event was one of the books, bringing it's largest crowd ever in the history of the event. There were lots of vendors who came out bringing tasty treats such as shaved ice.

"We've been here probably 10 years. It's a great show. Tom Martinos does a great job putting everything together. Everybody is having a great time, Everybody's smiling and happy. It's towards the end of summer, it's a good time to come out and party," said vendor Jeff Davis.

After bellies were full, kids could line up for balloon animals and their parents could do a little shopping at one of the many local vendor booths.

Blues on the Bridge is a town staple and some people have been coming out for more than a decade.

"Met a lot of people we love and know. We're just listening to the music, eating. He's ate twice. It's all for a good cause," said attendee Courtney Clark, "It's awesome, a good time to spend with the grand kids and look at all the people having a good time."

Blues on the bridge organizer, Tom Martinos says that event is getting stronger every year and is glad that everyone continues to support it.
