By Jason Weinstein.
Nearly 1,000 visitors will make their way to Binghamton as the area will host the New York State American Legion Convention.

The 98th annual New York State American Legion Convention, as well as the 96th annual New York State Auxiliary Convention and the 42nd annual Sons of the American Legion Convention will be July 13th through July 16th.

The Holiday Inn in Downtown Binghamton and the Floyd L. Maines Veterans Memorial Arena will serve as the headquarters for the Legion Convention.

The convention will include a parade on Friday night, starting at American Legion Post 80 on Main Street in Binghamton and going to the Maines Veterans Memorial Arena. The B.C. Transit Trolly will also take guests on a tour of the carousels in Broome County. The Arena Board has waived the rental fee for the convention.
