For the 19th straight year, locals came together to celebrate Pride Month in Otsiningo Park at the annual Pride Palooza.

Locals took in a strong roster of performances on the main stage, while going through the booths of over 70 local businesses and vendors all throughout the afternoon. All while showing their pride with flags, face paint and colorful outfits.

Organizer Chris Waters explained how the pride palooza wouldn't be a landmark pride month event in the southern tier without strong community support.

"The Binghamton and Broome County area has really come together to support this community, and the many times we've done this Pride Palooza or any pride event in the city of Binghamton everyone's been extremely supportive," Waters said.

Festivities continued well into the night, capped off with fireworks over the Chenango River.
