City Council Approves New Year's Eve Fireworks in Binghamton
Tuesday, December 29, 2015 9:54 PM EST
By Emily Girsch.
Binghamton City Council approved a resolution to allow fireworks on New Year's Eve this year.
This is the first time the city will have fireworks to celebrate the holiday.
Co-owner of Social on State, Mark Yonaty requested the resolution as part of a vast celebration the restaurant is putting on, which will also include a 75-foot-ball drop and live music.
"It really makes the whole event complete," said Yonaty.
"And it kind of sets the stage for the future because we want this to be an annual event."
Yonaty says the best place to see the fireworks will be from State Street, which will be blocked off for the event.
If you plan on attending, tickets are $20 and can be purchased online.
