BINGHAMTON, NY -

St. Mary's Bazaar concluded today, August 11th, with a tradition that has been going on for a long time. 

One of the biggest highlights of the last day is the procession after church, which honors the Assumption of Mary. 

Prayers are said and songs are sung by members of the church. The procession continued from the St. Mary's down Hawley, Carroll, Court, and Jay street.

 "This is definitely the conclusion part of it. You know, a lot of people do walk in the procession. It's been going on for 105 years and we're keeping it going," said church member Dan Svoboda.

The festival consisted of Italian food, kids games, and live music. It is an annual event to fundraise for St. Mary's Church.
