Binghamton Mayor Rich David met with Bagpipers and members from the St. Patrick's Day Parade Committee at City Hall Thursday Morning to discuss details regarding the City's 49th Annual celebration of Irish Heritage.

The Parade itself will go as it has in years past, beginning with a traditional Catholic Mass at St. Mary's of the Assumption at 11:30am. The actual procession will begin at the intersection of Court and Fayette Streets, featuring Irish dancers and bagpipes.

"For the Irish American people, it's an important event, and there's going to be commemorative events in the month of April all over the country, and that's the theme for our parade this year, so we're setting the tone for that next month." said Tom Kelly, the Chairman of the Binghamton St. Patrick's Day Parade Committee.

Following the end of the parade at the Intersection of Aurthur and Main Street, there will be a post parade party at Seton Catholic High School.
