Celebrating Diversity At The 14th Annual Pride Palooza

Posted: Updated:

The Waterfront in Downtown Binghamton was filled with vibrant colors, music, and dancing Saturday. Hundreds came out to celebrate Pride Month at the 14th annual Pride Palooza at the Peacemaker Stage.

Organized by the Binghamton Pride Coalition, this year's street festival featured a number of performances, live music, kid-friendly activities, and close to 40 vendors. 

“I think it’s important to show the community that we’re here, we’re an important part of the community, and we just want to be like everyone else.”
— Chris Waters, Director of Binghamton Pride Coalition
